The "ONE" Leadership Thing for Communicating Effectively Unfortunately, research shows that the #1 reason employees leave a job is that they don’t like their boss. Leadership derailment studies demonstrate that at least 80% of managers fail. Many more have serious “people” skill deficiencies. See this list.

The “ONE” Leadership Thing for Communicating Better

The "ONE" Leadership Thing for Communicating Effectively Bottom-line, improvement relates to the golden rule. You have to care about the success of your team. If it is all about you as the leader, long term you will lose. Zig Ziglar said it this way, “Give other people what they want and you will get what you want.” In other words, treat people with respect, hold effective meetings, listen to their concerns, do regular coaching, provide helpful and regular training, and positively engage them as individuals and as team.

If you get your ego out of the way and focus on the helping the team by positive communication, they will want to do a better job. This will quickly separate you as a good leader. Finally, I say it this way as well, “If you want your team to be better you have to be a better leader.”
