Most leaders want to be great at what they do, but far too many fall short. Why is that? What do great leaders have that not-so-great ones don’t?
There are many different ways of leading, but great leaders have a few important habits that anyone can cultivate in themselves.
Listen More Than Speak
"Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking." --Bernard Baruch
The most successful people don’t use conversations to fuel their self-worth, but rather as a way of learning from another person. Stop talking before others stop listening. The less you say the more interesting and inviting you become. You can always say more but you can never take back.
When you’re viewed as someone who’s approachable and cares to listen and understand, you’ll be trusted, respected, and better equipped to solve problems.
