There is one simple secret to helping your team get unstuck. Powerful listening is the key to showing your team that you are interested in where they’re coming from, who they are, and what they need to do to level up.
The best way to get stuck people re-engaged is to listen to what they are saying to you. Listening leaders don’t leap into solving problems. Great leaders have engaged teams and can listen for ways to bring to light new approaches, better solutions, and ideas on how team members can get themselves unstuck.
When a leader shows curiosity and a willingness to listen, they create a team that is filled with future leaders that they can someday pass the baton to. So listen longer, listen deeper, and take the time to show your team that you genuinely hear them and see them not only for who they are now, but who they have the potential to become.
