How to listen like a leader #021

An effective leader knows how to listen. Really exceptional leadership listens for what’s said while not being spoken.

Many a large company and organization is being led today by people who know how to leverage influence, chase ambition, and wield political control within a group of people. However, though this may assert a leadership role it does not constitute a person knowing how to lead others with impact.

Today, discover how to listen to those around you for ways to empower, inspire, and build great teams.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • My own mistakes in not listening
  • The inefficiencies of big organizations
  • Where is the distinguishing difference between you and those you might rather complain about?
  • A manager that ran his restaurant like an eighth grade football team – when leadership is abuse
  • The Sounds of the Forest parable
  • Why we must all change
  • The three steps to learning to listen
  • and more!
