Good Communication Can Improve Your Net Worth
This is coming straight from the horse’s mouth! Warren Buffet himself was quoted in an article on Forbes.com as saying “You’ve got to be able to communicate in life and it’s enormously important…If you can’t communicate and talk to other people and get across your ideas, you’re giving up your potential.”
Good communication allows you to deal more effectively with people, it allows you to better show your value and it allows you to confidently present your ideas with ease. It is no big secret – good leaders are good communicators. The best leaders are truly genuine. It’s that simple.
Here are the top five essential communication skills of the most effective leaders:
Align your actions with your words.
The best leadership is based on trust. That old adage plays true – actions do speak louder than words. Your behaviour is your single greatest mode of communication so be sure your actions back up your words.
Simplify the complex.
With all of the information that we are bombarded with daily through the media, work and so on, keeping things simple has never been more powerful and necessary. Effective leaders can take complex ideas and clarify them, making it easier to understand. Don’t get caught up with fancy business talk – say what you mean in as few words as possible.
Express your values with your own voice.
Sometimes people think that the corporate voice holds more power, sounds more important. Really, strong leaders are genuine. People want real. People respect real. People follow real.
Get on the floor – be visible.
Let your staff know who you are and what you care about. We are in the times of strong electronic communication, and that is valuable, but no substitute for face-to-face talks or even over the phone. This will create a personal connection to you and that is what every good leader wants.
Stop, look and really listen.
When you really listen you pay attention to the words and the body language. Ask good questions and stay focused on the answer. A good leader knows that a good conversation is two-way. Good communication is only as good as the message received.
