Maxwell Leadership Podcast: How Leaders Find Common Ground

Today, you’re going to learn how to bridge relational and perspective gaps between you and the people you lead. In this episode, John Maxwell shares one of the principles from his book Leadershift. This principle is called the Communication Shift, which is the shift from directing people to connecting with people. One key component of this shift is the ability to find common ground. This is a tool that has the potential to take your leadership to the next level. You see, we have more in common than we have differences. But somehow, our differences tend to take precedent over our similarities––creating obstacles and ripples at work and in our leadership.

After John’s lesson, Mark Cole and Chris Goede discuss how they find common ground with those they lead in order to create alignment on their teams. They also share the aspects of this lesson that are most difficult for them, and they challenge you to join them during their growth journeys.
