Great preaching is entertaining and informative. But leadership is something else completely.
Great listening helps us in building trust. You’ve probably heard the saying, “People don’t care what you know, until they know you care.” I have found this to be quite true. I could share the greatest wisdom on the face of the earth with someone, but if they don’t trust me it will likely go…
It takes time to build trust, of course, but being a great listener can kick-start the process.
Even if we make a mistake, it’s almost never too late to “try again.”
There are so many leaders in this world who are incredibly kind, generous and charismatic—but are simply not in touch with reality.
I’ve learned far more from bad leadership than I have from good leadership.
