Are you really listen??

A couple of rednecks are out it the woods hunting when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls 911.
He frantically tells the operator, “Bubba is dead! What can I do?”
the operator, in a calm, soothing voice says, “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
There is silence, and then a shot is heard.
The guy’s voice comes back on the line and says,”Okay, now what?”

The story may seem silly, but it contains an important truth. When we hear without really listening, our leadership is bound to suffer – and so will our followers.
