Discussion: Empathy-Based Listening Vs. Reality

Josh, Hannah, and Parker discuss Monday’s episode with Eric Maddox and his method of empathy-based listening that led to the capture of Saddam Hussein. Their conversation includes how to follow the direction that the person you’re talking is leading without letting them take the conversation in strange or unhelpful directions. They also discuss how to listen with empathy when you don’t have time and how to balance transactional vs. empathetic listening.

Josh Friedeman

Josh wants to help you LIVE and LEAD well.

From interviewing leaders and other experts who help leaders, to coaching leaders and entrepreneurs, to staying on the front lines of leadership research through his PhD work in organizational leadership, Josh likes to live and breathe all things leadership.

Sure, there's more to life than leadership - until, that is, you start seeing life AS leadership (*Freeze frame, roll credits*).
