In a world increasingly reliant on technology and digital communication, people skills are rapidly becoming the most powerful way top leaders and teams stand out from the crowd. The thirst for real human connection has never been deeper. The greatest investment we can make in people is to listen, be present and pay attention.
Simone Weil says it best, “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”.
Leaders who listen create trust, grow relationships, and foster stronger team loyalty. People know the leaders who have their best interests at heart because those leaders truly listen to them.
When we speak, we repeat what we know. When we listen, we learn something new.
