Effective communication is as much about listening as it is about attention. A business leader who is emotionally perceptive can motivate and push coworkers to be their best selves. The opposite leaves people feeling deflated and de-motivated.
If you want a firm command over communication to improve positivity and productivity, these tips will help.
Language and Writing
To be a great leader, one must constantly strive for mastery of speech and writing. Emails should feel and read as effortless as everyday conversation, with only essential language chosen for instruction.
Begin with using smaller, punchier wording that is more effective at getting your point across. From there, you may adopt other ideas like the five-sentence email.
Confidence and Attitude
Attitude is everything. It’s the difference between remaining ready to play and being an all-star and turning it off and on when you need to. Those who turn it off and on may find it hard sometimes to stay in the moment and enjoy life. They tend to bring their problems with them to work, and often let their own anxieties creep into their work.
When you lead with confidence in your own ideas, you tend to speak from a more thoughtful place. Your ideas sound more convincing because you’ve convinced yourself. In essence, you’ve done the legwork. That authority helps motivate and excite those around you, who can share in your vision for a winning plan.
Finally, spread positivity around you. Try to avoid negative language, and instead create thoughtful criticism.
