The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t being said

Leadership…..

Leadership is about creating, day by day, a domain in which we and those around us continually deepen our understanding of reality and are able to participate in shaping the future. This is the deeper territory of leadership; to collectively listen to what is wanting to emerge in the world and then having the courage to do what is required.

– Joseph Jaworski

Do not talk….

Do not talk about giftedness, inborn talents! One can name great men of all kinds who were very little gifted. They acquired greatness, became ‘geniuses’ (as we put it), through qualities the lack of which no one who knew what they were would boast of: they all pos­sessed that seriousness of the efficient workman which first learns to con­struct the parts properly before it ventures to fashion a great whole; they allowed themselves time for it, because they took more pleasure in making the little, secondary things well than in the effect of a dazzling whole

– Friedrich Nietzsche
