Leadership Tip of the Month: Better Listening = Better Leadership

Your employees have amazing ideas and legitimate concerns -- are you in tune with them, or tuning them out? As a leader, you need to have a strong voice. But you also need to carve out time to listen to, and ask good questions of, your team. To find out what’s on their minds:

  1. Get rid of distractions (so you can focus on the speaker’s message)
  2. Pay attention to nonverbal cues (sometimes, actions speak louder than words)
  3. Control your reactions (wait until everything is on the table before responding; resist the urge to contradict)
  4. Validate and verify (ask clarifying questions to ensure understanding)

Summarized from:
