In this episode, Jordan and Doug discuss:

  • We listen for what we think is important and, therefore ignore or don’t hear what may be critical for success.

  • Strong leaders often focus on solving the problem quickly

  • What we listen for is controlled by the neural pathways in our brain.

Key Takeaways:

  • To be successful changing what you listen for, you must believe it is the right thing to do and make a commitment to do it.

  • When you practice, you build new neural pathways resulting in new habitual behavior,

  • Successful leaders play a variety of roles. Each of those roles requires the leader to listen for different things.
