Good Leadership Skills Call For People Skills & Active Listening

Listen Actively
Use the techniques of reflection and clarification to support what the other people have said to prevent any confusion. Do your best not to think of what to say while listening to them; rather clear your head and concentrate on the message they’re conveying to you. Other acquaintances, family co-workers and your friends will recognize and appreciate your active listening abilities.

Be Aware of Others' Emotions
To do this you should know about what's happening in other people's lives. Contemplate the psychological effect of what you're saying and convey within the standards of behaviour appropriate for the circumstance.

Empathy is attempting to see things from another’s' point of view. When communicating with others, attempt not to be biased by preconceived ideas or notions or judgmental - results and instead see the situation from the other persons viewpoint.
If appropriate, offer your individual point of view clearly and candidly to prevent confusion. Remember that some issues might be overly stressful for others or taboo to discuss.

Make others feel welcome, needed, appreciated and valued in your communications. Offer words and activities to others, along with praise, of support.
