The Influence of Business Students' Listening Styles on Their Compassion and Self-Compassion
Ramos Salazar, Leslie
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v80 n4 p426-442 Dec 2017
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the four listening styles of business communication students on their demonstration of compassion for others and themselves. A sample of 387 business students completed a questionnaire that inquired about their perceptions of their preferred listening style, their compassion for others, and their self-compassion for those in a given organization. This study found that people listening positively affected both compassion and self-compassion. Another finding was that action listening negatively affected both compassion and self-compassion. Other findings are also discussed along with future directions.
