The second of the eight leadership and planning strategies.

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak,
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

Winston Churchill

The LISTEN leadership and planning strategy – and the skills to apply it – are essential to more effectively leading yourself and others no matter how tough things get.

It’s a key facet of each and every one of the PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST programs, whether it’s for navigating change, leadership development, communications, building team cohesion as well as when navigating pain.

As you’ll see in Rick’s programs, the LISTEN strategy is both an inside job as well as outside-in.

The four questions in the free download will give some sense of this.
