3 Reasons you're not doing what you want to do

I love Bob Dylan's quote: "A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night, and in between does what he wants to do."

HBR Ideacast: Become a better listener

Good listening is the cornerstone of coaching, but it's also an important skill to have in relationships, in business, and in the workplace. I ran across this Harvard Business Review Ideacast with an interview of author Mark Goulston, author of the book Just Listen

He discusses the 4 levels of talking and listening: (1) Talking over people, (2) talking at people, (3) talking to people, and (4) talking with people. This last one is the "gold standard" because it invites people to relax and welcomes them into a safe conversation. Listen to the interview
