Whether interacting one-to-one, with a small group or a large audience, understanding what makes communication effective will build your confidence. Great leaders aren’t born effective communicators, but it is a skill you can learn and develop.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you communicate desired outcomes to your team but you’re not 100% sure if that message has landed? Whilst your outcomes might be clear to you, sharing these with others requires a totally different approach. This is what all leaders need to know about communication.
You cannot underestimate the impact of learning and development on you and your team. Learning broadens the mind, challenges you, and provides light bulb moments that can stay with you forever.
If you watch ‘How to’ videos on YouTube, or read blogs and journals, this is a form of learning. Small bite-sized chunks of learning like these work well because we have a limited attention span and our brains can absorb two or three key points easily.
