Unlocking Organizational Growth: How CHROs can lead with a listening heart to drive business success

“Lev Shomea” is Hebrew for a listening heart and refers to the wisdom of Solomon, the wisest man in Biblical history. Organizations desperately need deeper listening from their leaders, particularly within human resources, if they are to achieve their growth ambitions through the combined and enthusiastic efforts of their people. How can CHROs model this type of listening behavior to build organizational cohesion and strategic alignment? In my conversation with Jeff Lackey Sr. on his “Growing Your Business with People” podcast, we challenge all C-level executives to be more intentional about where and how they invest their time and attention, and to take action to align their people around a compelling mission.

In this interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s so critical for leaders to demonstrate a listening heart

  • Why C-Suite executives need therapy

  • The value of conversations and synthesis

  • How HR’s role as an organizational listener delivers tangible business value

  • One clear action all executives can take immediately to stimulate business growth

  • The missing ingredient that makes decision-making much clearer and simpler

“Your best people are going to leave if you haven’t given them a reason to stay, to believe, and to contribute.”
