A good friend and neighbor left the following comment on one of my blog articles:
“Active listening is more than just seeking to understand what the other person is saying, it’s truly being open to be convinced of the error of our previous assumptions. This is extremely difficult given our natural inclination to seek only for evidence supporting our own assumptions and beliefs about the world.”
Great leaders listen.
Elite leaders know how to ask great questions both during expected and unexpected situations. Elite leaders use the skill of asking great questions to hear things that would otherwise never have come out. They use great questions to discover.
The best leaders I know are driven by creation and progress. They are much more interested in creation and progress than they are in being “right.”
I believe my friend nailed a key aspect of great leadership. The greatest leaders know how and when to ask great questions, listen with humility and focus and are open to everything they hear.
Thank you for reading.
