This assignment reminded me of my college counselor. Her name is Laurie Wilson and she was a great listener, calm, and peaceful person to have conversation about any topics. Her words of encouragement and her non-verbal facial expressions, gestures always made me feel very comfortable to share my feelings. She was a great listener and understood student’s problems without even much of explanation. We always had effective communication. One of the qualities that I would like to follow her is the way that she undertakes other people’s perspective and explains things in a very calm manner without any stress. I can tell that she was a great listener. She listens to students’ conversation not to reply but instead to understand what each student have to say or share. This is one of the many qualities that I would like to apply in my own life and be a great listener too.
