Overview

Why do so many leaders prioritize their speaking skills when communication studies show we spend more time listening than reading, writing, or speaking? The reality is, most people are below-average listeners, and it's keeping them and their team members from reaching their potential.

In Listen Well, Lead Better, Steve and Becky Harling share 10 practices that will help you be a more effective listener and leader. Learn how to ask better questions, make people feel heard and valued, and create an open and positive culture. Strong listeners also enjoy greater credibility, navigate conflicts better, and foster more engaged teams. Above all, the lessons here will help you hear from God more clearly and gain his wisdom on all matters in life. Becoming a better listener will transform how you lead and relate to everyone.

If we are going to be people who are going to lead well and have influence with those around us, we are going to need to become better listeners. In their book, Listen Well Lead Better, Steve and Becky Harling share ten practices that will help develop our listening skills. The book is written with this husband and wife interchangeably sharing their experiences and insights. They transparently tell of their shortcomings in each of their careers and the way they had to change in order to better manage people and teams. Each chapter gives questions one can ask of their team, so as to better understand how others perceive one's leadership. There are also questions for self-leadership to better help one become aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. Both sets of questions are designed to bring growth and trust between leaders and teams. While the book is written for leaders in churches, non-profits, and businesses, the information shared is practical and applicable in every area of life. The authors bring a biblical and faith-based approach to gaining better leadership and listening skills. "Learning to listen really is the key to greater influence!" (from page 173) As we learn to listen first to God, and then to others, we come to know ourselves and those around us better. Listening well enables others to know they are deeply valued, grows trust, and leads to everyone thriving. May we listen with our ears, so we can lead with His heart. **I received this book from Bethany House Publishers. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

In Listen Well, Lead Better, authors Becky and Steve Harling have given us a great resource. Packed with practical information, this book is entertaining and thought-provoking. Based on solid Biblical teaching, the authors share with humility and wisdom as they equip leaders to engage with others. Definitely a book every leader needs to have in their library.
