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.

How could improving your listening skills help you increase your impact as a leader?
