for leading and influencing
In order to lead effectively, it is important to be able to convey your message clearly to a variety of listeners. With good communication skills, you have the power to make your ideas clear to those around you, helping you to get your team on the same page whether you are dealing with changes in the workplace or you just want to make sure everyone is working toward the same goal.
Good communicators are also excellent listeners, inviting feedback from those around them and making everyone feel like their opinion matters. This is great for improving job satisfaction and team culture, and improves employee retention.
