A key asset that makes a difference in leadership is the art of *listening to understand and not listening to speak ! *
Extraordinary leaders are always QUICK to listen and SLOW to speak whereas ordinary leaders are quick to speak and slow to listen !
That is the reason extraordinary leaders always RESPOND with deep wisdom in a conversation while ordinary leaders usually REACT without clear understanding of the message of the conversation!
The truth is that, the art of listening is a SKILL that can be LEARNT by practice and you will be amazed at the wisdom with which you lead when you learn the art of listening!
