Three skills as listeners who often overlook team leaders


It is difficult to tell others what you think about exactly as it goes out to how-to books of talking skills. However, it is also a fact that listeners of the story are necessary to communicate with people. If the listener is solid, you can communicate smoothly regardless of the level of the speaker. So, Peter Breggman, who noticed the importance of the listener, introduced a technique of a good listener to "Most overlooked leadership skills"It is open to the public as a blog.

The Most Overlooked Leadership Skill - Peter Bregman - Harvard Business Review

Mr. Breggman noticed the importance of the audience was the meeting with the client Alba, a meeting of the meeting that I refrained the following week. Mr. Breggman, who was pretty nervous before the meeting with Aruba, started a meeting with a sense of awkwardness and told a story without context, trying to convey a lot of things. However, Mr. Aruba, who is a listener, did not show any hesitation, and understood occasional questions while understanding Bregman's story. Thanks to that, the conference that took place the following week was a great success, Mr. Breggman said that he was aware of the importance of listeners.


Breggman says that the leader should have the skill of the listener rather than the skill as a speaker who can clearly and strongly convey the message. Three skills to be prepared by such a leader as a listener are as follows.

◆ 01: Being brave

BySephiroty Magno Fiesta

It is apt to be courageous to be a speaker than a listener, but it is actually the opposite. The speaker can prepare what to talk in advance, but the listener does not have such an advantage. Listeners have to accept the contents of the other party's talks without preparations firmly, and have to have courage over the speaker.

◆ 02: Do not judge

BYChristopher Walker

Do not think critically against the speaker or actually criticize it. Attitudes such as argument, aggression and coldness are prohibited.

◆ 03: To be open

ByNathan Rupert

To ensure that the speaker firmly touches any ball of passion ball, the listener must always be open-minded. Strong emotions such as fear, anger, sorrow disturb the path of conversation. Also, make sure that you do not find the speaker's speaking content. It is important not to take the story of the talk but to listen to the story of the other person with always open feelings to understand.

By properly executing the above three skills, you will be able to understand how well the speaker 's path is messed up. According to Breggman, the most valuable personnel in the team are those who have ability as a listener.
