356. The Art of Caring Leadership and Active Listening with Heather Younger
Leadership and listening are essential skills for prolonged and effective meetings. Successful meetings create atmospheres that engage, motivate, develop and retain employees. However, to accomplish this change in an environment, leaders need the proper training for their team to come together.
Here are six basic leadership ideas outlined:
– Emphasize what’s good posting with an “attitude of gratitude.” This is easy with a successful team that feels their leader is valuing its voice
– Praise encouragement as a weapon against deteriorating morale
– Value integrity; lead reviewing your team’s choose your adventure decision pyramid
– Be aware of what’s not working as well as what is working; for reviews to work, you must use problem recognition and creative thinking to break negative cycles
– Welcome feedback from your team; silence is passive approval, and listening shows you’re interest
Listen to understand, not to reply. Ask questions before making any analysis or judgment. Ah-ha moments can be inspiring and energetic opportunities where we learn how to open conversations and lead in a new direction.
The psychological roots of caring leadership are derived from the understanding that with solid interpersonal abilities, one has a greater chance of building sustainable relationships with co-workers, employees, and other stakeholders, as well as enriched individual identities.
From these relationships, caring leaders develop self-awareness about their emotions and acquire the credibility for others to listen to them. The sustained growth is thus possible because it is grounded in an ethical leadership model based on the pillars of transparency and integrity that lead people through a selfless work ethos into servant leadership roles.”
A person’s wealth is not the only measure of value. Cultivating positive relationships begins with a genuine practice of care and empathy – through listening and open responses.
