A leader who talks – with no regard to input from others,
is only interested in their own agenda.
A leader who stifles the exchange of ideas and back and forth is not interested to hear what you have to say.
A leader who is not willing to hear diverse – and opposing viewpoints is blind to the fertile field of creativity and innovation – right in front of them.
will find themselves standing alone.
Shouting to be heard.
But there is nobody listening.
Wisdom is not gained by speaking.
It is earned by listening.
Becoming a good listener is a critical skill that can take a lifetime to practice. Listening is an incredible gift you give to others.
