For those of us with a faith perspective, judging others is really, really frowned upon. For others, well-respected leadership voices constantly emphasize the need to listen as a core competency for success. Never is “judge the team quickly and carelessly” referenced as anything but a horrible leadership failure.
The internal battle I’m engaged with, despite my daily focus on this issue, is just that…a battle! It’s striking how many times I jump to conclusions, or default to traditional stereotypes even though I know they are dangerous and counter-productive.
