According to a study by Emtrain, around 1 in 10 employees do not believe their leaders would take the time to listen to their complaints. According to the same study, nearly 1 in 3 employees believe their leaders neither express empathy nor show interest in their reports.
While your technical skills have their place in an organization, meeting the needs of your team and achieving your goals goes beyond this knowledge. Making the right decisions as a leader takes effective listening. Or, as my guest for this episode frames it, you need to listen at the speed of business.
Melanie R. Jones, Region President at Sysco, joins us for a value-packed conversation on what it means to be a good leader. If you are a leader in any capacity or a team member, this is a conversation you don’t want to miss.
“Listening at the speed of business is about identifying the places where you haven’t been your best and ensuring that you push those learnings into how you show up as a leader today.”
