do leaders listen……?

One view of the church….., originally uploaded by thehutch.

One of the dangers of leadership in this modern digital age is losing the ability to listen in order that we may hear and act.
Over the last few weeks, I have spoken, emailed and txt a leader at a church with information and they were ‘seemingly accepted. Today, I discover that the relevant communications have been ignored/forgotten and so another email trail begins.
In leadership, we need to demonstrate the value of people – a major component is listening, hearing and then acting. If we ignore or forget, we will soon discover that we become a leader with no followers.
