“Knowledge speaks. But wisdom listens.”  

~Jimi Hendrix

A message to the leaders reading today’s JAM:  Spend some time today listening.  Most leaders believe that they must consistently tell their teams where to go, what to do, and how to do it.  However, successful leaders know that true wisdom comes from asking good questions and listening intently to the answers – both verbal and through body language.

You do possess tremendous knowledge.  When you are asked for advice, perspective, or direction, give it.  Otherwise, ask questions, be quiet, and listen.
