Leadership

Educator Dennis Littky reports on graffiti that one of his students left on the side of a teacher’s truck:
TEACHING = LISTENING
LEARNING = TALKING
On similar lines: Leading is Listening. ~ good ‘leaders’ have the best Questions. Not so good ‘leaders’ have the best answers.

In a engagement if effort is towards building Team and organisation, then top leader kudos go to the top listeners. Listeners to what is being said and what is not been. The best… way to truly engage someone is to listen to them. And people are truely engaged for sure is when they are talking!
