Managers spend up to 80% of their time communicating. If you aren’t communicating effectively, you could be failing at 80% of your job!
Sure, everyone needs to be able to communicate well, but as a manager, it is vital that you have superior communication skills.
In your job, you must be able to give instructions employees understand the first time; coach and critique in a way that doesn’t bring them down; and listen actively in order to catch problems before they become disasters.
But you also have a lot of other responsibilities on your plate. Between managing your duties and your team’s work and interacting with other departments, you're frustrated and busy. And when you find yourself running from one thing to the next, your quality of communication somehow gets stuck in survival mode. You can’t afford to let this happen to the number one leadership trait you need!
When you don’t communicate well with your employees, they’ll draw their own conclusions:
“My boss is mad at me. I don’t know why.”
“I’m getting the silent treatment. My boss hasn’t spoken to me in two days.”
“I heard my boss whispering to another employee. I just know she was talking about me.”
“I thought I did a really great job on that project, but my boss hasn’t really said anything.”
“I don’t think my boss likes me. I guess I’ll start looking for another job.”
