The leader that communicates. Everyone will profess to understand that all leaders need to communicate but what does that mean in practice? For many the trusim that something is only communicated if that communication is understood, seems at odds when we see so many leaders communicating by broadcasting their opinions, messages and orders.
This can seriously affect an employee’s feelings of belongingness to the organisation and locality to their manager or organisation. It is hard to be engaged if you aren’t aligned to the mission and values of the organisation, especially if you believe that you are being communicated at rather than with.
Maverick Leaders see everyone as peers which means that when they are communicating they seek first to understand rather than being understood. Once they understand, they will seek to ensure that they are understood. For Jeannie Moravits Smith that means being an engaged listener.
In this radio show Jeannie really explains what this is, how you can ensure it happens and the benefit for your employees.
