Musing for:


“Seek first to understand, then to be understood” is Habit #5 of Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. He once called it “the single most important principle I have learned in the field of interpersonal relations.”

👉 You may learn something about inefficient processes from your team member with performance problems.

👉 You may learn something that affects revenue from your peer who won’t support your idea.

👉 You may learn something that helps you sell your ideas from that coworker who hardly speaks.

Look for what you can learn from each person you contact today.
