“Apotiks” should not have “sales promoters” pushing sales for a particular brand.
In my opinion, selling “medical supplements” just to “score a sale” is simply wrong and unethical. Medication and vitamins should not be “encouraged” this way.
The un-informed will be the victim. I do really get annoyed listening to promoters selling to innocent folks on how great their vitamins are …..not because they care for the customer …but more so because they want to close a sale.
One should listen and be respectful to others ……. one is never always right.
Is it the PROBLEM or is it YOU ?
Sometimes people blame you and fault you in order to hide their own mistakes and shortcomings.
Reflect on yourself, before you give advise to others ……
Are you doing what you preach ?
Do not teach when you can’t “do”.

This is so true. In meetings …we can see leaders butting in and not allowing others to finish what they have to say. These leaders have in fact literally shut down their learning process. It is not uncommon that great ideas do come from one’s subordinates. In fact the people on the ground should know best on improvements to be made and to contribute forward moving ideas.
Hence leaders should and must listen. This is one important way to grow.

Listening is probably the most underrated leadership skill. How you listen can be life-changing; not just business- or industry-changing.
At the heart of most examples of colossal leadership failures — which are in no short supply — leaders are often unable to connect with and make sense of the “VUCA” world around them; that is, a world defined by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
Listening is important to us as individuals, not solely to leaders. If you are not a good listener, there is no way that you can develop real mastery in any discipline.
In my work, the most consistent feedback we have received from the hundreds of workshops, programs and innovation journeys we have facilitated is this: Shifting your mode of listening is life-changing. Shifting how you listen, the way you pay attention, sounds like a really small change.
But here is the thing: Changing how you listen means that you change how you experience relationships and the world. And if you change that, you change, well, everything.
It is truly amazing how quickly people can shift their way of listening and attending. What I mean by “attending” is this: Wherever you put your attention as a leader, as an innovator, as a change maker, or as a parent, that is where the energy of the system around you will go — including your own energy.
But being a leader who listens takes work: practice, review, peer feedback and more practice. To become a better listener, you must understand the four archetypes of listening.
The four types of listening reflect the underlying principles of the opening of the mind, heart and will are:
When you listen on Level 1, downloading, your attention is not focused on what the other person says but on your own inner commentary. For example, you may be planning what you will say next.
As you cross the threshold from downloading to factual listening (Level 1 to 2), your attention moves from listening to your inner voice to actually listening to the person in front of you. You open up to what is being said.
When you start to cross the threshold from factual to empathic listening (Level 2 to 3), your place of listening shifts from you to the other person. That is, from your small vehicle (the intelligence of your head) to your larger vehicle (the intelligence of your heart). You step into the other person’s perspective. For example, you might think, “Oh, I may not agree, but I can see how she sees this situation.”
Finally, when you cross the threshold from empathic to generative listening (Level 3 to 4), your listening becomes a holding space for bringing something new into reality that wants to be born. You listen with openness to what is unknown and emerging.
What I have learned in my work is that the success of leadership and change work — whether that’s organizational change, industry change or life-changing work — depends on the ability of you, the leader, to observe your quality of listening and to adjust the quality of listening to what is needed in each situation.
Whats important is “WHO YOU ARE”. And let others be who they want to be …….
