"Whether you are an aspiring leader or in a support role, developing your communication skills can impact your success. It's more than the words you use. It's how and when you choose to share information. It's your body language and the tone and quality of your voice."

How leaders can avoid making the 3 "me" mistakes when speaking - The Business Journals

How leaders can avoid making the 3 "me" mistakes when speaking - The Business Journals | Leadership Communication | Scoop.it
Leaders tend to be good at choosing the right words. But they also want to fill silence quickly — or quicker than others — because they are in a greater hurry or feel greater urgency. In doing so they tend to make three “me” mistakes.

Message to Leaders: Speak with Conviction...Listen With Intention

Message to Leaders: Speak with Conviction...Listen With Intention | Leadership Communication | Scoop.it

(From the article): If speaking with conviction gets people’s attention and earns their confidence, Listening with intention will help us to keep it. This is the kind of listening that demands our total presence. Our intention must be to suspend judgment; to resist the temptation to interrupt; to fight our tendency to build arguments in our heads while someone is talking. It requires us to explore; to question and to rephrase. This kind of listening comes from a conscious decision to truly understand what is being said. It does not require us to agree but it provides the opportunity for meaningful discussion that can lead to breakthrough thinking and effective collaboration.

Leadership: The Art of Storytelling & Influence

Leadership: The Art of Storytelling & Influence | Leadership Communication | Scoop.it

Storytelling is not just a tool for speakers to help captivate audiences and win rock star fans. It’s embedded in company mission statements, chorused by recruiters and belted out in everyday work tasks. It can be used to draw out employee engagement, strengthen teams and ensure timely execution of projects. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most overlooked career tools that has a huge impact on individual and company success.

Great example of a leader who knows how to "start with why" and use every opportunity to share "why" with their people.

Absolutely excellent article that every leader should read!

 

Sharing the Vision so that each employees understands where the company wants to be, what success looks like, who their customers are, what differentiates their company's product/service, and then knows what they can do to contribute is essential.

 

What is that quote:  I tell you ...you may forget, I show you ...you may remember, however, when I involve you ...you will understand. 

 

What do you think?

7 steps to fostering effective leader internal communications

7 steps to fostering effective leader internal communications | Leadership Communication | Scoop.it

Expectations of internal communicators has changed over the years. Once our role was simply pushing a message top-down through an organization and assuming it had been understood.  Today, leaders are responsible for ensuring they have effectively communicated. Poorly communicated information hinders employee engagement. It’s almost worse than not communicating at all.

 

To help support leaders, we must now ensure structures are in place that enable consistency of the message sent to a distributed workforce spanning business units, skill levels, languages, regions and cultures. The modern IC professional enables and empowers organisational leaders to communicate effectively – whether it’s good or bad news.

 

Read the full article to find out more about these seven elements that can be utilized to help foster effective leader communications:

Have a clear vision, strategy and goalsUnderstand the value of good internal communications skillsHave a place at the top tableAlign leader and audience with messageCreate informed conversationsMeasure, identify and alignShare results with stakeholders

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, September 1, 2013 11:14 AM

The interesting thing is that persuasive people are not known for always getting their way.  They do however know how to influence, and don't allow their emotions to get in the way of achieving a goal.

 

The article discusses 7; however, below are the top 4 that I completely agree with and my take:

 

 

- Persuasive people listen, and listen, and listen (they sincerely listen to understand, and remain open to better ideas

 

- Persuasive people are purposeful.  They do start with the end in mind, and are clear on what success looks like and the goal

 

- Persuasive people know when to stay quiet.  They are not Yes, But people

 

- Persuasive people know how to connect.  This to me is so important, because they know how to skillfully adapt their message to get the best out of them and others in a way that they are able to genuinely connect

 

Take a read, and please give us your insight on what else should be on the list!

 

Make it a great day!
