The Human Voice

April 7, 2015 § Leave a comment

Iconic oral historian and author, the late Studs Terkel, was a story-teller, master-interviewer, and observer of working-class Chicagoans and those who were pushed to the edges of society.

Some of his best known books, Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, Race: What Blacks and Whites Think And Feel About The American Obsession, and American Dreams: Lost and Found, stand as masterworks.

As a leader, how might you increase your presence with people, eye-to-eye, with your human voice?

Get out there with people, come from behind your desks, and have a conversation. It’s the most important thing you could do. And will tell you far more than written reports ever could.
