Reading reflection Jewish Leadership

Book: Leadership on the line by. Linksy & Heifitz

What do Linksy & Heifitz mean by “being on the balcony” versus “being on the dance floor”? How does one move back and forth between the balcony and the dance floor? Why is this an important part of leadership? Can you think of a time when you were evaluating a situation “on the balcony” or “on the dance floor”?

2. Linksy & Heifitz talk about finding out where people are at (starting on page 62), which includes being a good listener. What connections can you make between what they say about listening, and what Rabbi Jonathan Sacks teaches us about listening in his chapter “To lead is to listen” (p.251-255)
