People don't line up with ideas. They line up with people.

What is the most important thing you can do as a leader?

We believe the answer is listening.

You see, leadership is an opportunity. It's a chance to articulate a vision, put it into action and make a difference in your organization and in the world. But how, exactly, do you do that?

We believe that people do the right things when they have the right resources. As a leader, your job is to make sure the people in your organization have the resources they need to do the right things, and help them do their best work and be their best selves as they work to bring your vision to life. And it all starts with listening.

When people feel listened to, they're more likely to feel a stake in your organization, and when that happens, they share in the leadership, which leads to better performance -- for your employees and for your organization.
