Leadership is Listening and Learning

If you think “leadership” is a concept that only applies to certain people in business, governmental, and civic organizations, think again. No matter our age, gender, occupation, education level, or station in life; each of us touches and influences other lives. Each of us is a leader to someone.

“Everyone is a leader to someone. Whether that someone is an employee or thousands of employees, your spouse, a child, or at the simplest level, oneself; you are a leader.” ~ Tracy Brinkmann

Leadership is Listening:

“The roots of effective leadership lie in simple things, one of which is listening. Listening to someone demonstrates respect; it shows that you value their ideas and are willing to hear them.” ~ John Baldoni
