How are your Leadership “Producer” Skills?

“Many people don’t listen…If you listen carefully, people explain to you what it is that they need.”
Rick Rubin

The best Leaders learn how to truly Listen to help bring out the best in others. Much like a great music producer, powerful Leaders don’t simply “tell” or “do”, but rather “evoke” greatness from what they hear in others. For the best producers, it’s not about them, but rather about the artist & the music. For your own leadership journey, ask yourself, how are my production chops? Am I truly listening for what’s possible? How am I supporting my team in bringing out their best?

Here’s a great article on leader & listener, Rick Rubin.
