A real, present level of listening puts you in a learning mindset and opens you up to be taught … to be taught by the speaker and by the spirit of what you’ve heard.
More than anything, a real, present level of listening sparks energy for the many components critical to a Leader:
- Effective Decision Making
We listen to gather information – not judge or assess – just gather. From what we hear, we learn. We learn about the other person and we learn from them. The equation is balanced when we then make decisions leveraging our new information.
Listen, Learn, and Lead. This is what Confident Leaders do!
It’s worth the time!
