Top Take-Aways from this Interview

  • Active listening creates the space for managers and staff to work better.
  • Accountability has been used too often to shift blame rather than create positive business results and it is time that we reclaimed that tool and message in our businesses.
  • If you don't expect resistance to change, such as in a feedback 1:1, you are less likely to create that resistance in your interaction. Too often, we create what we are hoping to avoid by putting attention on an undesirable aspect of our communications.
