Communication skills are an integral component in the organizational management process because it influences how we receive as well as how we deliver messages. This in turn helps us understand our organization’s purpose, the culture, as well as how we respond to and support our colleagues. Knowing how to communicate concisely, without criticizing or setting off the defense mechanisms of others, is an important element in organizational management. Highly successful leaders, for example, engage in a level of communication that motivates top performances and inspires team members and partners to become better people. The most effective leaders, in fact, are those that lead by example, delegating responsibilities and duties in a way that motivates and values staff members.
Recruiters target their search for effective leaders with good communication skills because they know these are the potential ring masters who will lead their team enthusiastically to successful outcomes. In addition, top recruiters seek individuals in leadership positions with the potential to help staff members: (a) feel confident about themselves;, (b) accept them for who they are, (c) focus on their strengths and talents, (d) praise them for their hard work, and (e) value their talents and what they bring to the organization. In other words, companies are looking for strong leaders that are not only compassionate in their acknowledgement of weaknesses in others, but they also help them work through their challenges with dignity while praising their strengths.
