Communication is key in our daily lives but a place where communication takes a bigger tole is as a leader. Just the way leaders communicate with their teams, the public, and others can make a huge difference. communication as a leader is important to make sure that all-important information is maintained and delivered in a manner where it builds trust and success.
Currently, I communicate in a long rambling manner. This is because I don’t have a set idea in mind before I start talking. This will cause the audience to get bored and lose the key information I am trying to deliver. As a leader, this will confuse people who need clear direction from leaders to have a path on how they should continue their work. This is something that I am currently working on — trying to speak articulately and concisely so that more time can be used for clarifying question weather than trying to decipher what I meant. This will create more efficient communication skills and reduce back and forth communication between leader and team.
I will continue to make sure to care about other people on my team and emphasize them. However, in a concise manner, I will be able to improve efficiency and make sure more time is spent working on the problem rather than trying to understand the problem.
