Leadership Communication Tools

Leadership Communication Tools | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Communicating in today’s world requires both a new mindset and a new toolset. Like a maestro conducting a symphony, savvy leaders pay attention to the sound, the effect, the and the instruments needed to strike just the right notes.

 

Some schools have a full time communications person. Others have none.

 

Regardless, a school leader can set just the right tone with a good strategy and a 21st Century set of tools.

No Interpersonal or Intercultural Communication Skills

No Interpersonal or Intercultural Communication Skills | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Communication is such an important thing. It is how we alert people of our needs, our wants and our emotions. It's how we deliver our thoughts to someone else. It's how we get our voices heard. Everybody communicates but not everybody is good at communicating.

Communication skills are decreasing these days, I think it has to do with the rise of texting and nonface to face communication. I am taking Intercultural Communications this semester (I think I'm going to like this class) and my professor said America is lagging in interpersonal and intercultural communications. She said that people are screwing up at interviews because they are rude, ungrateful for the opportunity and don't have people skills. She also said we are at a loss because we don't have intercultural communication skills and we expect everybody who comes here to learn English, meanwhile we don't bother to learn their language or their culture. I understand the problem here: we need to have an understanding of other cultures and how to communicate with them, especially when we live and work in a globalized society.

How are your interpersonal communication skills?

I'd like to think mine are great. I am a people person. I have used interpersonal communication skills in every job I've had, both paid and unpaid jobs.

How are your intercultural communication skills?

I think mine are pretty good because I worked full time one summer at an international college and I met so many people from different countries. Just by talking to them or by people watching at work, I picked up some knowledge about different cultures. I also love meeting people from other countries. I made friends last week with a girl from China and I brought her over to meet my roommates. We learned a lot of new things about China just by asking her questions and listening.

Have you realized people who have poor interpersonal communication skills?
