5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication | New Leadership | 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.

Seven Things Leaders Can Learn from Bill Clinton About Connecting with People

Seven Things Leaders Can Learn from Bill Clinton About Connecting with People | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Most Presidents are more popular out of office than in. In Clinton’s case, he likely gets a lot of credit for the work he’s doing through his Foundation. He also does a lot of public appearances and is a master communicator and connector.

Earlier this week, I got to see exactly how much of a master he is when President Clinton spoke to a packed house for the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. For just under 90 minutes, Clinton held an audience of 1,500 people rapt as he answered questions on everything from Ebola to education to Putin to what his most favorite thing was about being President (that last question was submitted by the moderator’s 4th grade son).

There were a lot of things I noticed Clinton doing that makes him world class at connecting with an audience. There were a lot of lessons that leaders can use to connect with their people. Here are seven of them:

President Clinton would be an awesome contestant on Jeopardy. No matter what topic came up in the Q&A, Clinton had an informed point of view backed up with stats and specifics. People are much more likely to listen to and connect with leaders who are well informed...

Communication is key, especially when it comes to giving feedback. Talking at people isn't as effective as taking the time to build a structure for relationships.

 

Understanding is a must, especially when it comes to building trust and engagement. Do your employees know what they need to do to be successful? Giving them adequate resources is a crucial part in ensuring top quality results from them. The article gives a good question to ask yourself:


“What is the most important thing these employees want to know, what is the best way to encourage dialogue and how would they be most comfortable sharing input?”

 

After taking the employees into consideration, think of good ways to get them to share their ideas. This will be an opening for formal[printed] and informal[a quick convo] feedback. The feedback should be respected by both parties, and should be responded to in a timely manner. This makes it so that the employee feels valued. After exchanging feedback, you should continue regularly sharing ideas. Communication is best when its two-way.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 19, 2013 6:40 AM

Great scoop Claudia.  The only thing I would add to the article is that the supervisor should ensure to request additional feedback from her/his direct reports, in addition to getting feedback from established organiazation channels like suggestion boxes, etc.  

 

The reason this is so important is becuase direct report have great specific insight that can help the supervisor learn even more from the feedback.  

 

Frrom the article:

 

Act on feedback – Highly engaged employees are enthused about their organization and believe they can positively influence its success. Acting on employee feedback and highlighting the impact employees make is a strong engagement builder. Be sure that all employees know how their colleagues’ suggestions or ideas are being implemented.


Regularly sharing results and requesting additional feedback creates predictable, consistent two-way communication that encourages employees to take ownership and understand their ideas are valued by the organization.

A business owner's day is filled with multiple conversations, and the effectiveness of these conversations over time, will determine the level of success that the business ultimately achieves.

 

Unfortunately, many business owners are not as adept as they believe that they are, when it comes to conducting effective conversations across the broad spectrum of people with whom they need to converse.

 

This excellent article, suggests that business owners must practise the practical and personal skills of communication to be effective leaders, and it identifies seven interaction sins to avoid in communicating with others to achieve desired outcomes.

Tony Phillips's curator insight, November 14, 2013 5:23 PM

Leaders must have high levels of self awareness and flexibility. It is more that technical expertise.

Patrice McDonough's curator insight, November 20, 2013 1:26 PM

We seem to have lost the art of having meaningful conversations without upsetting each other. Can we learn to be more objective and less personal in our efforts to co-exist in the workplace? It's a skill for sure
