The Most Important Four Words a Leader Can Say - Daniel Coyle

When you think about great leadership, you tend to think about big moments: daring decisions and inspiring speeches; moments when a great leader shows the path forward.
But in my research, I kept seeing leaders deliver something different. They weren’t big moments, but rather little moments of confession, when they admitted to a mistake or a … Continue reading "The Most Important Four Words a Leader Can Say"

1 Brilliant Yet Mostly Ignored Communication Skill For Leading Your Team

1 Brilliant Yet Mostly Ignored Communication Skill For Leading Your Team | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it
Being a leader has nothing to do with charisma and everything to do with this one ability.

Via Dr. Karen Dietz

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 20, 2:34 PM

I love this quote from this post!

"You can lead yourself. You can encourage, motivate, and help others. But you can't lead people. People are not horses or dogs. Leaders often think they are there to manage a business, which might be true, but they are really there to motivate, inspire, listen, and sell."

 

So what's the 1 ignored communication skill that will help build your team?

 

It's listening. It's listening without an agenda. It's listening deeply and appreciatively. Actually, using appreciative listening is one of the most powerful types of listening and the most underused. It's deliberately evoking staff stories and listening to staff stories.

 

Coaching clients and MBA students repeatedly say that gaining this narrative skill is the most impactful communication tool they've gained in their leadership and work life.

 

Read the article for more insights on listening.

All of us have heard negative comments when a new initiative comes our way. We are good at coming up with reasons for avoiding new work. It’s part of human nature. So if this is true, then why not address the concerns in the room at the outset? Let your people vent their feelings first before giving them a new assignment. It is good to confront the issues in the room -- head on.

Original link: https://hbr.org/2016/10/a-checklist-for-more-persuasive-presentations?_scpsug=bookmarked_595085#_scpsug=bookmarked_595085

 

Well.... I like this post and then I don't.

What do I like? I like the simple way the author lays out the structure of an effective presentation.

 

What don't I like? One of the 6 steps is "include a story." But if you look at all the steps, the ENTIRE presentation becomes a story -- which is way better. The author completely missed this.

 

This points to 2 things to remember when putting together a presentation that influences others:

  1. Structure your entire presentation as a story using these steps
  2. Include at least 1 quick story about a client & their results (or a product/service story) somewhere in your narrative presentation.

 

In other words, do both!

 

Oh, and BTW -- I don't like the word "persuasion' in general. That's because persuasion is often about manipulation ("eat your broccoli and you can have dessert"). Influence is about shifting mindsets by offering experiences. Stories are experiences :)
