Managers equipped for the future

“I realized I wasn’t listening at all!”

We meet managers every day who think they are coaching and involving, but they quickly discover how far from the truth that is. Managers who think they are good listeners often make the painful discovery that in reality, they are not listening at all.

Of course, no manager is intentionally bad at communicating, and most would want their colleagues to feel heard and supported. It’s just that they are conditioned in a traditional style of leadership that is now rapidly becoming outdated and challenged. An alternative way of relating to employees requires totally different abilities. These abilities are often completely in conflict with the old ones, hence why it can be so difficult to develop. They are abilities like listening so someone feels heard, instead of listening until it’s your turn to talk. Trusting and coaching instead of steering and directing. In many way, it is a process of unlearning.

The result of the Tuff training is that managers really change their mindset and behaviors. They are transformed and experience what gold can be found when you truly listen.
