LEADS BY EXAMPLE

COMMUNICATES

6-76. Competent leadership depends on good communication. Although viewed as a process of providing information, communication as a competency ensures there is more than the simple transmission of information. It achieves a new understanding, creates new or better awareness. Communicating critical information clearly is an important skill to reach shared understanding of issues and solutions. It conveys thoughts, presents recommendations, bridges cultural sensitivities, and reaches consensus. Leaders cannot lead, supervise, build teams, counsel, coach, or mentor without the ability to communicate clearly.

LISTENING ACTIVELY

6-77. An important form of two-way communication to reach shared understanding is active listening.  Although the most important purpose of listening is to comprehend the sender’s message, listeners should provide an occasional indication to the speaker that they are attentive. Active listening involves avoiding interruption and keeping mental or written notes of important points or items for clarification. Good listeners will understand the message content and the urgency and emotion through how it is spoken.

6-78. It is critical to remain aware of barriers to listening that prevent hearing and absorbing what speakers say. Avoid formulating a response before hearing what the other person says. Do not allow distraction by anger, disagreement with the speaker, or other things to impede.
