Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why did a talk at New Look, talking about 5 rules to find your spark. All of it is very good, but rules 4 struck me as relevant to AL. Watch below, but in summary, good leaders:
- sit in a circle,
- speak last,
- stay neutral when listening (i.e. no nodding in agreement) but
- ask probing questions to find out why
This is what we strive to be as coaches, but also what we strive to instill in our partipants.
