A book that goes beyond simply increasing awareness or reminding us of the importance of active listening, particularly in hierarchical situations within organizations.

As always with Olivier ZARA, the reflections, the examples based on real-life situations and the contributions in terms of methods are operational and clear.

I finished reading this book with a stronger awareness, not of the importance of listening - we all know that - but of the tools I'll be able to put into practice and test with my team.

This book allows you to grasp the full power of the word listening. More than a behavior, it is a strategic know-how to reach decision-making excellence and operational excellence. Beyond simple listening, Olivier Zara proposes a complete approach with simple and powerful protocols such as feedforward to durably develop engagement and agility.

Olivier Zara brilliantly explains how to revisit listening, often overused, and turn it into an operational practice and know-how. He highlights the power of the process and the virtue of the protocol by proposing two techniques: operational listening and feedforward. These techniques contribute not only to operational and decision-making excellence, but also to corporate well-being. They will foster the engagement and talent retention!

Always inspiring and refreshing, the literary output of Olivier Zara is astonishing. He manages to put a light touch on themes related to management, leadership and team dynamics, without ever altering structure and readability. Olivier Zara's latest opus is a delight!

After Decision-Making Excellence and The Chief Always Speaks Last, here's a new manifesto! Once again, Olivier Zara innovates and thinks out of the box. He shows the limits of feedback, especially negative feedback, and cleverly introduces feedforward: a soft and benevolent way of suggesting improvement in divergence mode, in the mutual interest of managers and employees.

An excellent book on operational listening: as a manager, listening helps you to learn, to recognize your employees and to make the best decisions. Contrary to popular belief, it can be learned! Read this book quickly and take notes so you can apply it to your day-to-day work.
