Good leaders know when to speak and when to stay silent. They understand the importance of listening and watching.
Your job as a leader is not to solve every problem. Your job is to discover solutions.
Chances are, there is a solution waiting to be discovered by listening to a teammate. By seeking to collaborate. By brainstorming instead of bulldozing.
The Bible says, “Be slow to speak and quick to listen.”
Heed those words and you might find that others are more interested in what you have to say.
Do you think it is more natural to be a talker or a listener? What are the keys
to being a good listener?
