Think of a leader who constantly gives you advice, occasionally asks a question only to respond with their own opinion without giving you a chance to speak up your mind, interrupts you and doesn’t let you complete your thoughts, pretends to listen by nodding their head or making sounds like “aha..hmm…” when you can see that they are clearly distracted or those who don’t bother to ask a single question and leave you wondering what to make out of the one-sided conversation. 

Don’t such leaders drive you crazy by pretending to be too busy to notice you and for making you feel that your ideas and opinions don’t count. Would you respect and trust them as a leader? Would you follow their advice out of a sense of authority or from a place of influence?
