Honoring what we have in common

Learn to honor that which we have in common.

A good leader is intentional in discovering ways to honor others.

Here are three thoughts to consider:

#1: Storytelling. Learn other’s stories and be ready to tell your own

#2. Let others know you SEE them.

I. First, Slow down and let curiosity guide you. 

II. Pay attention to others strengths and then be ready to acknowledge them

#3. Be willing to explore that there is a difference in knowing what a person looks like or sounds like to knowing who they are.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives. This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
