Becoming a Better Leader – (Simple Concept #1 out of 11) Do You Listen?

You think you are a good leader huh? Do you have followers? Do you lead them to something positive, effective and with valuable results to show from your leadership? I want to go over some key concepts for those that want to become a better leader.

I was reading a news article the other day and came across an outstanding piece on leadership. Dave Kerpen, co-founder and CEO of Likeable, NY Times best-selling author and keynote speaker, wrote this piece and there are eleven important principles to share with you to become a better leader and we will go through these 11 concepts one at a time.


Here is the first concept below: 1. LISTENING Do you consider yourself a good listener? Why or why not? This is a good question as the leader to ask yourself. “When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” – Ernest Hemingway
Listening is the foundation of any good relationship. Great leaders listen to what their customers and prospects want and need, and they listen to the challenges those customers face. They listen to colleagues and are open to new ideas. They listen to shareholders, investors, and competitors.

According to the American Express Open Forum discussion, here’s are four reasons why the best CEO’s listen more.
A. Better understand customer and employee needs. By listening to what your team thinks, without your own agenda, you’ll be able to understand what they want and need.

B. Help stakeholders feel heard. When people believe that their voices are being heard, it makes them more committed to the mission at hand. Everybody wants to feel heard and valued. Even if you never use a single idea your staff or Board share with you, they’ll feel better about you and the organization just from your listening.

C. Gain a better understanding of what’s really going at your organization. Sometimes the only way to get insight is to sit back and focus on paying attention. The higher up in your organization you are, the more important this is.

D. Get access to new ideas and perspectives. Who knows the intern or woman in the mail room just may have an idea for your next product line that you’ve never thought of.
