Have a problem at work? Listening may be a solution. Regardless of how you define your key workplace objectives, I’m willing to bet that better listening skills could help you achieve at least one of them.

You enter the meeting with your boss armed with a list of reasons why you deserve a salary bump—including the extra responsibilities you’ve taken on since a more senior colleague left the company, the major project you spearheaded last month, and the consistent positive feedback you’ve received from your clients, peers, managers, and direct reports over the past...
