Why Any Leader Should Embrace Story Listening Before Storytelling

Why Any Leader Should Embrace Story Listening Before Storytelling | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it
“What I’ve seen is a leader doesn’t start with storytelling, they start with story listening.” -John Maeda, Design Partner, KPCB During the past two years, B2C as well as B2B marketing leader…

Claude Emond's insight:

Listening, the lost skill without which collaboration and real progress are impossible. I just realize that all the things I propose now (on engagement, change management, changeboxing, agile, etc.), all are based on listening first, something I have myself to  learn to do better.

It is true that if you don't listen to me, I will not listen to you though I might pretend to be listening because you are my boss.

Leiders die beweging tot stand willen brengen, beginnen met luisteren voordat ze gaan vertellen.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.
