Dickman on Leadership: Being There & The Importance of Deep Listening

I’m excited to share the next episode in my video series “Dickman on Leadership” where I explore different aspects of leadership through classic film. As a narrative and leadership coach, I believe film holds a mirror up to society and human behavior. In this series, I’ll share some of my favorite examples of both excellent and poor leadership. I hope you enjoy and learn something new! 

As a leadership coach for more than 20 years, I have found that the most difficult skill for leaders is one of the most important, listening. It is a full mind and body activity that must be practiced and mastered to make an effective leader. In this “Dickman on Leadership” episode we take a look at Peter Sellers’ performance in the film Being There and I explore techniques you can use to enhance your listening techniques.
