Some say I’m not a good listener – but I sure try. I’ve actually learned a ton about listening over the years of being a CEO coach. I’m actually a great listener when I shut up and don’t cut people off while they are talking.
This is a photo of Katie Reiach, Founder of www.SparkGroup.ca and I. She’s the woman who led the PR Team of 6 people for me at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? when I was there as COO years back.
As Katie put it when she sent me this photo from a www.TEDx.com event – it’s a slightly traumatizing photo of both – but it’s proof that I listen 😉 Especially when there is something to be heard.
