Many individuals who step into a leadership position are involved in giving a speech that they often talk to people instead of them. What these individuals seem to forget, or not understand, is the effective communication based on conversation and conversation means that both the leader and his parts must both be heard and even more important to listen to. This does not mean, however, that someone in the lead should simply change their position because someone else disagrees or argues that it is different. For thirty years of training, leadership development and counseling, I've come to many people in leadership, who simply accept "last best" someone else says, as a new idea or post, without actually listening or analyzing. The leader should mean listening effectively as a help to help the leader shape ideas that provide value and serve the needs of the organization and work those values in a comprehensive perspective. Albert Einstein wrote: "Learn from yesteryear, live today, hope tomorrow." The most important thing is not to stop asking. "Too many leaders do not seem to listen well enough to formulate vital questions to make true conversations.
1. While some leaders seem to either not be aware of or do not worry about preferences, others hear what others say without to listen effectively. These individuals say words instead of ideas or concerns and take on words within a narrow range that a leader has embraced. Therefore, rather than having true and effective communication, respond to these leaders or respond to it. They often hear the question, which is often not the case. This often ends up opening the Pandora box, because the leader of the answer raises new concerns that the original question never had, and it further increases the communication shortage. Before a leader should answer a question, he must make sure he listens carefully and ends the question to get an agreement about what real Often, someone in charge, due to the daily focus of the organization, actually develops a narrow perspective and stops visualizing the big picture. This large image must always contain the needs and values of components.
2. To be successful listeners, leaders need to do certain things. First of all, they must listen carefully, without disturbing, to make sure they have been completely bothered by others' concerns. Then they must be able to ask important questions that help them better understand the concerns. These questions may include: What do you want to see? What is the most important ?; What do you think most, and what not? Why are you a member and what is the most important part ?; Why do you believe that? These are just a few of the questions but these questions must be asked and the leader must wait patiently, again without disturbing, to get the answer and then be able to ask for appropriate follow-up for as long as necessary.
It's much more important for leaders to listen and ask but it's having a "stock" response. Sometimes, a good conversation, will help create a different perspective or approach that could really reach a goal towards a vision.
