Why doesn’t it happen enough?

Here are three things everyone knows.

  • Listening improves communication.
  • Appreciating people makes them perform better.
  • Leaders create more leaders.

If you get to hear them, you say, ‘ Yes, that is true.’

As an afterthought, you add, ‘ That is common sense.’

A series of questions to ask is

1) Is this held to be true?
2) Is it so widely known that it is common sense?

And if the answer is ‘ Yes’ ask,

3) Why doesn’t it happen enough?

The eloquent answer, ‘ Common sense is not common’ is a cop-out.

Stay with the question.  Why doesn’t it happen enough?
