Why is #activelistening an important #skill for a leader?
Updated: Jun 29, 2022
Often we tend to listen just to come up with a reply in our head.
In meetings we push our arguments in an attempt to persuade others.
Or worse, we talk a lot and don’t listen at all.
It is understandable that leaders often struggle to listen actively 🤫
Many times during their career they have experienced that talking a lot in meetings was a way to profile themselves.
And profiling helped them get promotions.
However, over time they forgot the importance of listening👂
If you are able to listen actively to what others are saying, you can make a huge #impact as a leader.
👉You can learn things you didn’t know yet.
👉You can get new perspectives you didn’t consider.
👉You can understand other people better.
👉You can improve your ability to influence and persuade others.
👉And you can increase your productivity by not wasting time on endless discussions.
