“How Are You?”

Submitted by James Higginbotham on March 24, 2010 – 4:10 amNo Comment

“How are you?” We ask everyone when we first meet them. Do we really care?

Most of us don’t. We use it blindly as an alternative to ‘Hi.”

Before we’ve had a chance to finish the words, we are onto the next thought.

Those that disciple others successfully learn to listen.

They learn to listen to what people say and what they aren’t saying.

They learn that hitting the 1 hour mark or getting through the lesson isn’t the goal.

They learn that the goal is to stop, listen, teach, and connect.

Are you connecting to your team, or just to hearing yourself talk?
