Effective Leaders Communicate to Win

Effective leaders know that communication is a key driver of business success. They also know that communication is inextricably tied, not only to their own leadership, but also to the superior position their company has earned. Leaders set the tone and must create an environment within which effective communication becomes a natural way of doing business. Today, over reliance on communication technology has distanced us from the human side of interpersonal communication. The results can be harmful not only to employee relations, but also to customer satisfaction. Learn how to exploit technology, while ensuring that you and your organization maintain the interpersonal skills that sustain meaningful dialogue with employees, customers and stakeholders.
