“The art of communication is the language of leadership.” – James Humes
Communication is the most important skill any leader can possess. In fact, the quality of your success in business depends directly on the quality of your communication with others and in that respect communication is not about your work; it IS your work.
And it’s not just about speaking, writing or reading, but hearing and understanding what is being said – and in some cases what is not being said. Communication skills in all forms need to be worked at and improved to ensure that you understand people and they understand you.
So how is your communication? Are you better than you think or is there room for improvement?
“When we aren't curious in conversations we judge, tell, blame and even shame, often without even knowing it, which leads to conflict." ― Kirsten Siggins
