The important work the “artist” does will be influenced by the leader and the people you surround them with.
If you don’t take time to listen to the artist, their artistry can never be fully revealed.
Take time to recognize someone who’s a little disconnected, their interest waning, the level of engagement on the decline. Question the root-cause and listen to the reasons.
Your clients will thank you. Your teammates will be rejuvenated. Your organization will improve. Results will soar!
Embrace the grind. Enjoy the journey. And keep listening.
