Think back to leaders you have known please. Did they have the ability to truly listen?
I bet they did. People we remember in a positive manner are people who listened with their eyes, heart and ears.
Being listened to makes us feel validated and respected. And who doesn't want that?
Who needs validation today? Go do it! You will reap respect and trust -- advocates.
My motto: Listen more, talk less.
This includes listening to your heart :).
