Friday Reflection: Listening

Of all the leadership skills, listening is the most valuable and one of the least understood-Peter Nulty, Fortune Magazine

As you think back on this week, ask yourself these questions:

  • When you spoke to people, did you listen and make them feel like they were important and valued? If you did, remember and use those strategies again. If, not, what can you do differently next week?
  • Did you cut off people, answering them before they even finished their thoughts?  Did you stop listening and starting thinking of what you were going to say?
  • Yes, maybe you knew the answer, but letting people finish their thoughts is a way of respecting them. Plus, your mindset is that they are not bringing anything to the table and whatever they have to say won’t affect your thoughts-in other words they don’t matter.
  • Did you see interactions with people as a way to build relationships? Of learning more about them or learning something new?
  • When you interact with people is one of your goals to help them grow from good to great? How will you do that? Are you trying to empower them or just get rid of them?
