Your listening framework
Keep the following questions in mind
- What is the speaker saying, what do they mean?
- What is the overarching point being made?
- Have I grasped the whole picture?
- Is the information supported by the facts?
- Is the information consistent, sensible and watertight?
- Does it fit with what I already know?
- Can I use this information, put it to work for me?
- If so, what areas should I validate, i.e. double check?
