Today, I have a short thought that should apply to just about any of us in higher ed. It’s about listening.
- It’s why we gather data.
- It’s how we calm people down when they are upset.
- It’s how we build relationships.
- It’s one half of a conversation.
So I ask you… if you are not opening your site, your time, or yourself, up to feedback… are you even communicating? Aren’t you missing half of the information you need to do your job?
Thoughts? How has listening helped you in your field? Do you have any horror stories when someone has not listened?
