Keys to Effective Communication. Effective communication is an essential component of individual or organizational success whether it is at the interpersonal, inter-group, intra-group, organizational, or external levels. Everyone communicates, but learning how to communicate effectively requires skill. Some have a natural flair for communicating and a strong sense of confidence or charisma that endears them to others. Good people skills start with confidence.
Leadership through Conversations. Effective leadership is not about being authoritative. It depends on how well you communicate with your team and with your organization's members. Leadership development is not a sudden event, it is a continuous process. Build up the confidence to eliminate conflict, rather than delaying or avoiding challenging conversations. Keep your emotions under control so you can focus on solving the challenging conflict and listening objectively to others.
How to Become Assertive and Self-Confident. Assertiveness behaviors are very important in many situations. Most people are not assertive for fear of displeasing others and of not being liked. However, although you may avoid some immediate unpleasantness by not being assertive, you could also jeopardize the relationship in the long run if you refuse to assert yourself and then feel taken advantage of over and over again.
