Jimmy learned to listen well from his father. His father coached him to anticipate – don’t worry about what you’re going to say. Instead, focus on what others are saying and thinking. This helps you learn what’s going on in the room and helps you operate with empathy and compassion for others. You show others that you understand them and that you really care by listening well.

Jimmy learned how to engage in productive conflict from Herman Sandler. Sandler taught him that you know whether you’re right or not. Fight as hard as you can, but the second you don’t think you’re right, it’s over. Jimmy incorporates this wisdom in his personal and professional life.
