I run a military leadership school, and often times I hear young leaders complain that their ideas aren’t being considered, or valued. Sometimes it makes them feel like their boss doesn’t listen to them, or it goes in one ear and out the other, so they feel defeated.
I understand some leaders just don’t listen, or they don’t accept change; but before I jump to that conclusion, I prefer to examine the strategy used in their presentation just to make sure that’s not the potential problem because if so…this is definitely fixable.
In my experience with leading people, I can tell you that it’s nice to have a well thought-out plan presented to you versus a complaint. In this video I will talk a little about how this plan should be put together the next time you propose an idea to the leaders in your organization.
