Listen Well Lead Better by Steve and Becky Harling | Review

If you are a leader, this new book by Steve and Becky Harding may just be the next book you need to read.  Listen Well Lead Better is designed to help you become a leader people want to follow.  Steve and Becky share 10 areas to work on that will majorly improve your listening skills.  I know I am more willing to follow someone who truly listens to my concerns and ideas.  Even if I am wrong or my idea is not chosen, I like to know the leader is at least listening to what is being said.

The book is written for leaders in all walks of life and all levels of leadership.  Learning to listen to your followers/opponents will help you and them to communicate better.  Here are just a few things this book will teach you:
Make people feel known and valued
Ask better questions (to get better input)
Create a culture of collaboration and cooperation
Achieve greater credibility
Engage conflict constructively

Each chapter ends with questions for your team and a set to answer yourself.  Make sure your team feels comfortable giving honest answers, and do not take offense at what was said.  As you work through Listen Well Lead Better, and seek to apply what you are learning you will see a change in both yourself and the people you lead.  So, get listening!!
