To Listen is simply to open your ears and mind, and really hear what the person speaking is trying to say. This is the most easily understood of our Big 5 Behaviors, and yet, can be the hardest to actually accomplish. Listening actively, hearing what is said, can be difficult with internal monologues, pre-existing perspectives, and all of the “noise” of daily life, but it can also be the most worthwhile.

With that in mind, we put together a playlist of songs to remind you to open your ears and “Listen” today! So get your headphones out, hit play, and hear the songs that inspire us to “Listen” every day!
