Listening skills is a learned quality that most conversationalists take years to develop. Most people do not possess effective listening skills in which case their attention span is limited and a person's mind begins to travel when someone is speaking. Effective listening requires much more involvement than an occasional glance and a nod of the head to inform the communicator that his/her voice is being heard. I can recall a time where an individual was speaking to me and I completely spaced out (my mind was wandering) and I offered a periodic nod and smile in order to appease the communicator to show him/her that I was paying attention when in fact I checked out within the first five minutes. Paul Treuter (2006) creates a simplistic view of the fundamental framework of effective or active listening skills. Listening requires the communicator and listener to be interactive. The objective is to make the communicator feels as though their views, comments, concerns, and suggestions are being heard. A listener must refrain from passing judgment on the communicator regardless of the opposition of conflicting beliefs or viewpoints.

I agree with this quote. Change implementation is one of the most difficult task managers, leaders, and executives face for the reason that subordinates often resist change as a result of fear of the unknown variable or fear that the change will lead to disaster or some form of dysfunction will hinder an organizations ability to function smoothly. Change implementation does in fact require careful planning due to the extreme possibility of opposition arising such as; an employee's unwillingness to change because they do not see the need for change.

Research has shown that leadership is an observable, learnable set of practices. It is a process ordinary people use when they're bringing forth the best from themselves and others. Liberate the leader in everyone, and extraordinary things happen. Good leadership is an understandable and universal process," (Clemmer, Kouzes and Posner, 2006). In many cases, we confuse a leader's natural charisma or ability to influence others with inborn traits. This confusion allows people to elect a leader based on popularity instead of skill or charismatic attributes which can be problematic. Leadership in my opinion is a skill that can be learned and acquired from anyone; the true essence of leadership lies within the confines of how a leader uses his/her new found power of influence. As a result of leadership being a learned skill, the capacity to learn and apply life's lessons is key to becoming and remaining a successful leader. There are many examples of leaders who have either failed to learn or failed to apply what they have learned and who have thus failed as a leader (Connelly and Rudnick, 2007).

The training and development practices I would recommend to Hong Kong will be geared towards building skill competencies, creating an environment of accelerated technological advancements and establishing employees that are multifaceted in various job functions. The objective is for Hong Kong to become an aggressive competitor with top-tier performers. ? Cross Training Current Employees-In the event that an organization is short staffed, managers, leaders, and executives must anticipate short handedness and prepare for potential changes in the level of production and performance during the day-to-day operations. Therefore, employers should develop a method for cross training employees that is cost effective, and not time consuming. This step is a win/win for employees and employers for the reason that employees will prepare themselves to become more competitive and marketable. Employees would have an advantage of learning a plethora of new skills that will open the door for promotion opportunities; employers will save time and money by relying on the skills and attributes of current employers without the daunting task of training new employees.
