The Views of an Executive Business Coach and Strategic Business Consultant
Tell me something, how are your listening skills?
What do you “hear” when you’re “listening” to others?
When I first started managing people, I realized that my message was not getting through to all of my staff. I had passion and commitment for what I was doing, but the people I managed seemed ho hum. I took a step back and got some training in effective communication and WOW did it make a difference!
People got it! But more importantly, I figured out that stopping to listen to what others had to say first was CRITICAL in getting people to “hear” me! There is something dramatic or synergistic or special that happens when a person BELIEVES you have listened to them…. NOW, I did not say agreed with, just listened to!
