What is your favorite Leader In Me habit and why?

Seek First to Understand then to be Understood is my favorite Leader in Me habit because the focus is to learn about others. It is important to learn how to communicate, relate, and get along with others. We can make it far in life by ourselves but we can make it further when we have others around us who support and love us. We do this by first seeking to understand others and then they will take time to understand us!
