“Listening requires a special mastery. We have to recognize that our mind never rests, and that we tend to be stuck in our own thoughts while we listen to others. Thoughts about the time, about our duties, or other issues, may interfere with our clarity. A good leader refrains from doing two things at the same time and focuses on the client.” Hakki Dobie Ayverdi
