Leadership is something people do. Some people inherit leadership positions, some are elected, some are appointed. Or they may just happen to be there when a situation arises that demands leadership.
To encourage good communication, you need to encourage others to speak freely: Show interest. Greet new ideas with interest. Give the individual your undivided attention. Maintain eye contact. Use the individual's name. Smile, relax, and be friendly.
You can employ a variety of methods to help you remember details, including note-taking, repeating back, memorization, and mnemonic devices. When giving information, use all five senses whenever possible. Speak clearly. Use language that everyone understands. Vary your tone and pace. Move from the general to the specific.
Everyone gets to learn about everyone else, their needs, their characteristics. Learn what excites people, what motivates them, what they need to succeed, and how to support and grow the group. To understand others, we must first understand ourselves. This understanding can come naturally as we grow.
A group exists for a purpose. Control is the throttle on the group's engine--the energy that gives it direction. As a leader exerts control, he balances what the group is working towards (its purpose or task) and keeping the group happy and satisfied. The leader sets the example by doing what he expects others to do: Doing his own job well. Following instructions with little or no supervision. Trying his hardest. Behaving maturely. Showing a positive attitude.
Do offer a listening ear when a person asks and he or she is: Undecided. Confused. Uninformed, lacking options. Locked in. We might also counsel with an individual when a person has made a quick decision: Worried about a decision. Worried about the consequences. Did not consider all the facts. Misinterpreted the facts. Did not consider all the alternatives.
It is your personal behavior independent of external influences. If you don't match it with your behavior, you will enjoy no respect and find it increasingly difficult to get the group to work with you. If you fail to set the example, why should you expect group members to do any better?
Under any circumstances, to faithfully represent the group, you must: Fully understand the nature of the problem. Know how the decision (if any) was reached and be able to communicate it to others. Accurately and responsibly communicate from and back to the original group. You must be consistent, possess integrity, and be fair to all parties.
Present a win/win attitude. Let all perceptions, problems, misunderstandings, and bad feelings in the early phases. Establish possession and responsibility for the problem. Get agreement on the problem before going on to solutions. Be clear about each phase of problem solving. Look for ways of breaking fixation and redefining the problem/solution space. Seek agreement on criteria before evaluating the alternatives. Avoid taking premature decisions. Use formal "majority" voting as a last resort, for it is a win/lose approach.
Evaluation is, in essence, two things: An attitude of continuous striving for higher goals. A process for judging an individual's or group's completion of a task against previously identified standards. Why is evaluation important? Because we want to know whether we are achieving our goals. So why are goals important?
