360⁰ Listening

Are you listening to every level of your organization?  It’s easy to fall into the habit of listening to only those on your level in the organization.  We may be headed for trouble when we think we know what “they” want or what “they” think.  D.J. Kaufman said, “Wisdom is the reward for a lifetime of listening … when you’d have preferred to talk.”  Not listening to all levels can create…

  • A lack of ownership in the organization
  • Low morale
  • Missed opportunities for fresh ideas or innovations
  • Tunnel vision

Today’s Leadership Challenge: Listen to those above you, listen to those beside you, listen to those below you, listen to those outside you
