Listening can be hard. Listening requires time. Listening requires energy. Listening requires you to ignore your own inner dialogue, so someone else’s can be heard.
Listening is about a single person. Listening is leadership. Listening is not the same as hearing. Listening is natural and easy when we want something. Listening takes skill and can be difficult when we need to listen but don’t know it.
Oddly, if its true that we have to intentionally listen in order to find out what we don’t know and need that means we must do something.
