Leading Beyond the Status Quo – Leaders Listen to Understand Before Seeking to be Understood

In the words of Stephen R. Covey, most people don’t listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.

Do you seek to understand or do you seek to be understood?

This week, I dedicate the show to the concept of listening and Kevin Watson, an international leadership and culture change coach, shares some wonderful insights on the how to listen holistically, with the curiosity of a child.

As you will learn from Kevin:

Listening is a way of respecting and adapting our behavior towards others. This is a critical leadership competency if we want to be considered a leader.
