People Skills & Communication

Powerful Communication is a Leadership Essential

First-class communication practices are at the heart of every successful business. Communication serves two critical functions in every organization. It disseminates the information required by employees to get things done and builds relationships of trust and commitment. Without it, employees end up working in silos with fuzzy direction, ambiguous goals and small opportunity for improvement. With poor communication profitable projects and change programs are a often a scarcity and effective leadership is often missing.

Communication is one of the most important and essential leadership skills that a person can improve so they can achieve success in business. Studies show organizational communication is directly related to increased rates of absenteeism, lower productivity, lower staff retention rates, higher injury rates,  less innovation and a host of other costs to the organization.
