During this conversation, Jenn and I talk about Shane Safir’s 2017 book Listening Leader: Creating the Conditions for Equitable School Transformation.  At the intersection of neuroscience, mindfulness, and equity is the need to be a listening leader.  Safir creates a framework and makes a case for the transformative power of listening. As with all of the books that Jenn selects for The Main Idea, The Listening Leader has the perfect balance of the theoretical and the practical.

You can reach Jenn through her website for The Main Idea (www.themainidea.net).  I’m a happy subscriber of The Main Idea and a big fan of Jenn’s work.  She’s offered to send listeners of this episode a free summary of The Listening Leader if you send her an email at J.David-Lang@TheMainIdea.net.  It’s definitely worth the time.  Enjoy this interview with Jenn David-Lang.
