How Leaders Balance Authority and Collaboration
How many times in my life have I been told to listen more.
Especially when I’m in the middle of a very satisfying argument and I want to get MY point across.

However, I came across this talk by Rob Pennington which made me wish I had heard it before all those arguments with Brian.
Rob’s funny and so pertinent discussion on…

…really brought the message home.
Ask questions, listen to the answers, ask more questions, make those giving the information feel safe to discuss their point of view and feel truly heard, learn from their information where appropriate and only then make the decision on how a task is to be done.
