10 COMMUNICATION SECRETS OF GREAT LEADERS | Forbes

10 COMMUNICATION SECRETS OF GREAT LEADERS | Forbes | MILE Leadership | Scoop.it

Examine the world’s greatest leaders and you’ll find them all to be exceptional communicators:

http://www.n2growth.com/history-leadership/

Effective communication is an essential component of professional success whether it is at the interpersonal, inter-group, intra-group, organizational, or external level.

The number one thing great communicators have in common is they possess a heightened sense of situational and contextual awareness. The best communicators are great listeners. 

Great communicators are skilled at reading a person / group by sensing the moods, dynamics, attitudes, values and concerns of those being communicated with. Not only do they read their environment well, but they possess the ability to adapt their messaging to said environment without missing a beat. The message is not about the messenger - it is however 100% about meeting the needs and the expectations of those you’re communicating with.

We are excellent communicators when our interactions with others consistently use the following ten principles:


1. Speak not with a forked tongue: 
Trust is best created by earning it with right acting, thinking, and decisioning. Keep in mind people will forgive many things where trust exists, but will rarely forgive anything where trust is absent.

2. Get personal:
If you don’t develop meaningful relationships with people you’ll never know what’s really on their mind until it’s too late to do anything about it.

3. Get specific:

Learn to communicate with clarity. Simple and concise is always better than complicated and confusing.

4. Focus on the leave-behinds not the take-aways:

The best communicators are not only skilled at learning and gathering information while communicating, they are also adept at transferring ideas, aligning expectations, inspiring action, and spreading their vision. 

5. Have an open mind:

The rigidity of a closed mind is the single greatest limiting factor of new opportunities.

A leader takes their game to a whole new level the minute they willingly seek out those who hold dissenting opinions and opposing positions with the goal not of convincing them to change their minds, but with the goal of understanding what’s on their mind. 
Open dialogs with those who confront you, challenge you, stretch you, and develop you.

6. Shut-up and listen:

Great leaders know when to dial it up, dial it down, and dial it off (mostly down and off). 

7. Replace ego with empathy:

Do not to let your ego write checks that your talent may cash. Good communication is about empathy and caring and not about arrogance of an over inflated ego. Empathetic communicators display a level of authenticity and transparency.

8. Read between the lines:

Take a moment and reflect back on any great leader that comes to mind… you’ll find they are very adept at reading between the lines. They have the uncanny ability to understand what is not said, witnessed, or heard. 

9. When you speak, know what you’re talking about:

Develop a technical command over your subject matter. If you don’t possess subject matter expertise, few people will give you the time of day

10. Speak to groups as individuals:

Leaders don’t always have the luxury of speaking to individuals in an intimate setting. Great communicators can tailor a message such that they can speak to 10 people in a conference room or 10,000 people in an auditorium and have them feel as if they were speaking directly to each one of them as an individual. 

11. Bonus – Be prepared to change the message if needed:  


Another component of communications strategy that is rarely discussed is how to prevent a message from going bad, and what to do when does. It’s called being prepared and developing a contingency plan.
