This insight passed on by one of the top leadership gurus. If you want to become a great leader, recognise that there is no "off" switch when you are around the people you are leading..
The next time you are in a meeting with your staff members and you start to become bored or tune out, imagine you are on video. Imagine that your words, actions, and even expressions are being taped and sent to people who care.
Then think about the fact that people in the room are watching you. Your team is listening—and they do care. Act accordingly , strong leaders actively listen and communicate with caring, interest, and enthusiasm no matter how tired they may be. It’s all about the delivery, mean it, convey it and apply it!
When was the last time you actively listened for a better outcome for the first time?
