Here are the ten steps that can help you to have an effective listening: 

1.) Face the speaker and always maintain an eye contact. 

2.) Pay attention, but be relaxed. 

3.) Have an open mind and listen to them without judging them. 

4.) Carefully listen to the words and try to understand what the speaker is saying. 

5.) Never interrupt the speaker, nor impose your thinking on them. 

6.) When the speaker takes a pause only then ask a question. 

7.) Never ask things unnecessarily, only ask to have a better understanding. 

8.) Try to feel what the speaker is feeling and communicating. 

9.) Try to give simple and regular feedback to the speaker. 

10.) Focus on the non-verbal cues like facial expression and gestures.

Basically there are two types of listening skills:

Discriminative listening

This type of listening is developed in the initial stages. This is the most basic kind of listening and does not require any effort as such in understanding the meaning of words or the phrases but just different sounds are produced. For example, in the early childhood, a distinction can be made between different sounds that get improved as the child grows up. As we move from childhood towards adulthood this distinction increases with the capacity to distinguish between different sounds.

Comprehensive  Listening

Comprehensive listening is a broad term and it basically includes understanding the messages being communicated to the other person. It is also fundamental to all listening sub-categories. For a person to develop comprehensive listening the listener first has to have an appropriate vocabulary and other language skills. This kind of listening gets more complex as the same message given to two people might result in understanding it with different meanings.

Comprehensive listening is also complimented by sub-messages through non-verbal communication like the tone of the voice, body language, and gestures. This kind of non-verbal signals can help immensely in communication and comprehension but might also confuse and might lead to misunderstanding.
