Communicating Well

All leaders understand the importance of good communication. They understand that good communication is always a two-way street that includes both sharing their own thoughts and ideas and also listening to and understanding the ideas of others.

There are many ways for leaders to communicate with others. Some leaders like to give speeches about their ideas to large groups of people, and others like to share ideas with others in small group meetings or by talking with people individually. Some leaders communicate their thoughts and ideas by writing stories, poems, or songs, or by drawing, painting, or sculpting to show others what they are thinking and feeling.

No matter how they share ideas, leaders always seek feedback from others about their ideas and know that good communication in groups can lead to teamwork around common ideas. Good leaders are always sharing what they think with others, listening to what other people are saying, and working to help other people communicate with and understand each other.
