The Smarter You Get, The More You Listen

When it comes to professional context, I invariably find people who are very hard working and keep slogging without due results and consideration, are smart and focused people. It is a cut-throat competition and the world of snark workers never give up. If you look at renowned leaders, they are true listeners!
I have had my fair share of so called leaders who pretend to know what they’re doing. I have also had the privilege of leaders who have challenged me and helped me grow into a leader. But, I think one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is how important it is to “listen” and wait for others to think and reply to my questions. Covey’s 5th habit of “Seek first to understand, then to be understood,” has been one of my guiding mantra.
