“What is it about a leader’s communication style that enhances their effectiveness?“Bruce
Insight – I have noticed that an admired leader communicates differently. It is not the tone or rate that makes a good leader’s communication stand out, but rather it is the quality and how it impacts others. Two important qualities of a leader’s communication style are positivity and calmness.
A leader almost always sees the positive or upside of an issue or person. An effective leader rarely speaks in a demeaning or negative way, even when the situation calls for it, or the leader feels less than positive. To me, it comes from habit and from having an “I am able to deal with the cards that were dealt” attitude. A trait of the great leader is that they assume the best about a situation and person.
