November 8, 2022by Faber Infinite

If you’re a leader, the most important thing you can do is communicate effectively with your employees and coworkers. Whether you’re providing feedback on their performance or trying to rally them around a new initiative, communication skills are critical to the success of any project. In this transformation Tuesday, we’ll go over some tips for improve communication skills as a leader. 

Develop emotional intelligence

Empathy and emotional intelligence are important skills. Emotional intelligence is a set of skills that help you understand and manage your own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.  

As a leader, you must learn empathy in order to manage relationships effectively and build trust with your team members. 

Be aware of your body language

One of the crucial aspects of effective communication is body language. Your posture, facial expressions and gestures give others insight into how you’re feeling and what you’re thinking.  

Being aware of your own body language is only half the battle: You also need to be able to read others’ body language as well as use it as an indicator of how they’re feeling.  

Communicate the vision of your company

This sounds simple, but if you practice this skill regularly and with full commitment, you’ll find that it’s not as easy as it might seem at first glance. 

To communicate the vision of your company, you must be able to articulate what it is, how it works and why it’s necessary for everyone in your company. You also need to be able to clearly explain this vision with clarity.  

Be mindful when giving praise and complaints

Praise is a powerful tool to encourage good behavior, but it can become meaningless if you’re not careful.  

Compliments should be specific and sincere, not throwaway remarks that you use as a reward for employees who have done something right. If an employee has made real progress, don’t hesitate to let them know.  

Illustrate your Points Through a Story

To bolster your communication skills as a leader, it’s very important to learn the ability to create and communicate through an authentic and compelling story. 

Employees find it easier to refer and connect to an image of a story than to talk about a statement or project plan. On top of that, telling good stories builds trust and binds the hearts and minds of your employees with you. When you tell a good story, you give life to your plans, goals, and visions. 


The better you can communicate with others, the more effective you will be as a leader. If you make an effort to improve these aspects of your communication style, then you will be able to work together with others more effectively and build better relationships in your organization.
