Ask don’t assume

I have come to realise that trying to convince people who put so much faith in their assumptions is a waste of time.

People must learn to ask questions and verify things. They must try to understand the facts before jumping into conclusions. Good leaders look for answers. They do not consider themselves excellent mind readers. They are not arrogant. Good leaders are humble and they give others a chance to explain themselves. Good leaders are not judgmental. Good leaders respect others. Good leaders are good listeners. Listening on the other hand is deep. It is more than just hearing. It is the ability to comprehend what someone is saying. These are the people who come to you in a polite way and ask questions. When you talk they look you straight in the eye and when are done they can either ask more questions or nod their heads and say ” Oh, I see”.
