Summary

Of the many business challenges leaders face, communicating effectively with their employees is one of the most important, and effective communication is the foundation for a number of other leadership competencies. Leaders need to understand that they are never not communicating. As a result, their awareness and use of nonverbal communication may be a key factor in improving their leadership abilities.
