5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

Leadership communication is much more than the words we say and how we articulate what we want to team to “hear.” Effective communication is also about emotional intelligence, knowing your audience and active listening.

(From the article): Stay calm and be positive. Calm is contagious. And so is panic.Smile. Carry yourself with confidence. And try not to wear your emotions on your sleeve. I am not saying to deny our normal human functions but be aware that effective communication is about 7% the words we say. The rest is about body language, tone and delivery.

(From the article): CHOOSE YOUR CHAMPIONS WISELY Identify the two to three people with whom you already have an existing authentic relationship and whose skills, networks, or access support your own goals. Ideally these should be people who you would naturally advocate for and vice versa. You might work in the same field in different positions or hold a similar role in different industries. The point is that you'll want enough overlap to be valuable to one another but not so much that your networks are virtually identical already.

Ask them if they're ready!
That has especially helped me when delivering feedback.
Four steps to make your criticism feel constructive @AdamMGrant

1. Explain why you’re giving the feedback 
2. Take yourself off a pedestal
 3. Ask if the person wants feedback 
4. Have a transparent dialogue, not a manipulative monologue

People are remarkably open to criticism when they believe it’s intended to help them.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 14, 10:28 AM
Transformational and servant leadership are important. Being responsible as a leader and putting employees first is part of those models. When we reduce anything to catch phrases, we reveal the darkside. Being a leader requires being mindful, attentive, and tactful in listening and sensing what is happening. Organizations, themselves, do not take care of people. People take care of people.
