Dickerson’s management moment: A wise leader really listens

Power Point: Knowing I need to listen and knowing how to listen is not enough. Unless I want to listen, unless I have the desire, it won’t be a habit in my life.
ó Stephen R. Covey
Power Thought: How many times have we heard someone talking but weren’t really paying attention? A successful leader is one who is intimately interested in others and genuinely wants to hear what others say. Developing an interest in others begins by listening ó really listening.
ó Doug DickersonPower Surge: A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he knows something.
