People come asking for inputs. Do all of them absorb the advice?
An easy way to find out if someone is really absorbing your advice is to see what percentage of the time they talk. Some just want to share their views.
If in case you are stuck in a situation where you are actually just listening, don’t completely agree but they are defending – then assess how many statements you are making and how many questions you are asking. You need to move to a counselling style questioning mode if you have to get through.
