Leaders need to understand how others listen before they speak

How are people listening to you?

People hear things differently, understanding how they listen is as important as the message. Carl Jung defines listeners into for categories.

Thinking types: Those who are listening for the idea.

Intuitive types: Those who are listening for the vision.

Sensate types: Those who are listening for the plan.

Feeling types: Those who are listening for the part they will play.

You as a leader are probably one of these and have no problem communicating to people of similar type, but what about the other 75%. Are they hearing your message?
