“More than ever, we need collaborative reframing.”
Judith Rodin, the president of the foundation and former president of the University of Pennsylvania, led an effort to take the university “out of the ivory tower and into the streets.”
At a meeting of The Rockefeller Foundation, as covered by The New York Times, Rodin explained to participants that the time has come to listen to innovators at all levels.
The time has come to pay attention to comments and criticism at all levels.
The time has come to acknowledge the understanding of employees and teammates within an organization — at all levels.
Do you see a theme here?
From C-level to intern, every member of an organization has insight they can share.
And it’s all valuable.
It’s not just about listening up — we need to start listening down.
