Leadership is about using your experience and wisdom to move others in a positive direction; it’s about empowering others by serving as an example.
Ken Blanchard doesn’t just give presentations about leadership and advise others on how to be good leaders–he exemplifies everything a true leader should be, especially during times when it’s not easy to be in such a position. But first you need to know the one thing that Ken Blanchard talks about and shares with those desiring a leadership role,
“people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
If you want people to listen to you when you are leading them or creating a business that requires you to provide leadership. Ken shares that “they have to know that you care about them and want them to succeed. If they don’t know this down to their core – they will not listen to your advice”.
Do your people “know” that you care? Do you care enough to ask them, and know the truth about what they think about you?
