When you’re a leader communication plagues a very important role. It’s also good to be an effective listner because people like to know that they are being heard. When in leadership it’s very important that you pay attention to what’s being said and not just formulating a response. It’s always good to get an understanding to avoid misunderstanding.
When leading strong culture belief can be maintained when you set examples that you lead by. It’s also important to have coaching and development into play that will provide framework for the team. It’s also good to respect everyone , rather than down talk people. When leading people look at what you do or how the business is being ran. Good leadership is important because it can be the rise or fall of your establishment.
