Leaders who listen both effectively and intentionally are able to create trustworthy relationships that are transparent and lead to loyalty. These leaders make it a priority to keep employees’ best interests at heart— because they truly listen to and value them.
Listening goes beyond being “all ears” and giving someone your undivided attention. Listening requires you to be aware of body language, facial expressions, moods, and demeanor. In his recent article, How to Develop Listening Skills, leadership keynote speaker, Steve Gutzler shares 10 tools to become an effective listener.
Steve challenges you to develop better listening skills, “Effective listening requires more than hearing words being transmitted, it demands that you find meaning and understanding in what is being said.”
Being more mindful of other’s stress and showing compassion requires us to boost our emotional intelligence. Unleash the leaders within your organization and bring Steve to your next meeting or event!
