Ep 78: The Foundation for Speaking as a Leader
Listen to the Episode Here:
Leadership is ultimately an act of language. However, underneath all of the speaking, there is a foundational element many leaders tend to overlook: listening. While unfortunate to note, many leaders tend to be poor listeners, listening only with very specific intentions in mind. Also, in most cases, many leaders only listen to hear whatever is needed so they will arrive at a conclusion they have already identified. Ideally, as a leader, you should leave people with a profound experience of being gotten each time you listen. So how should you go about it? What makes listening as a leader challenging? And why is this important? The answers to all these questions and more in today’s episode so don’t forget to join me!
