Communicating to Influence: Build Loyalty and Trust on Your Team

Our theme this issue is Communicating to Influence, a key skill for effective leaders. Why is it important to be a good influencer? A few thoughts come to mind:

No one works in a vacuum. Excellent communication, negotiation and collaboration skills—all elements of communicating to influence—grease the skids of co- worker relationships, solving potential interpersonal relationship problems before they start. Over time, these same skills build loyalty and trust, characteristics of any successful team.
