Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, that's a good point... if the leaders (or wannabes) are bad at something it is exactly the real listening... they have their vision, mission, drives, they run ahead and it's not sure that (informally, in the reality) there is still anybody behind them, following them... of course, there are other factors, en première lieux the monthly salary, the security and the difficulty to find another better place which help him forget to ask after whether the others following him are really on his intellectual, passionate bandwagon or in mind they are searching for the alternatives which undermines gravely him/her ambition to achieve the so well-pondered - and never really shared and confirmed - goals.... yeahhhh, listening of stories, it's perhaps even more important than telling them... ca va de soi that it worth something if  one understands the message, true story behind the story and can effectively use that for developing, bettering the cooperation, the alignment, the engagement and the trajectoire os the common pursuit of the goals...

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

To listen carefully, attentively, accepting way... Well, it's sooooo important... I was not too bad earlier in my C-level responsibilities but as I started to learn the serious coaching skills, I've found that I was rather awful in this... even, in my private life... it's so hard sometimes to listen... to really listen the other... and listen, guys... if I managed to do this even  outside the strict coaching area, it is soooo rewarding... everywhere, anytime...
