What separates a good leader from a great one?
According to Avi Dan, founder of Avidan Strategies and a Forbes contributor: “A key skill of managers is actually the ability to talk less and listen more. Leaders who seek advice from underlings, even very junior staff, make better, more informed decisions. Colonels and Generals, whether in the military or marketing, are often so far removed from the line of engagement that, without listening to front-line personnel, their decisions are made in a vacuum. Most managers, though, are not natural-born listeners . It’s an acquired skill that is enabled by another critical managerial behavior – asking questions. Anyone can learn to ask more questions. The best managers practice and learn which questions make the biggest impact, and when and how to apply them.”
