Ep 120 | Listening, Leading and Educating

There are many ways one can be a leader, but not every way is an effective method of leading. There are many aspects as to what makes a good leader, and one of those traits is listening. Our guest today is Shane Safir, who wrote the book “The Listening Leader: Creating the Conditions for Equitable School Transformation.” Her book focuses on primarily on education and the educational system, but her takes on leading and listening can still be applied to many different fields. Today, we talk with Shane about the importance of listening as well as the effect that it can have on those around you, and the educational system.
