Listening is the most important thing you can do today.
That is our superpower, but we often choose not to use it.
People tend to focus more on getting their point across or expressing their opinion rather than listening.
The false narrative we tell ourselves is “if I just SAY it more clearly they’ll understand what I mean.”
Instead, we should LISTEN more carefully to ensure that we understand.
Try to “out listen” everyone in your meetings for the next week or so and see how much more effective you can be.
