Conversations: The Linchpin of Leadership Competencies

In a recent survey conducted by Chief Learning Officer and the Human Capital Media (HCM) Advisory Group, 47% of executives ranked communication among the top targeted leadership skills.

“There are some leadership competencies we see continuously,” said Susan Scott, CEO at Fierce, Inc. “For example, effective leaders in any industry need to be trustworthy, results driven, and make quality decisions. The common thread is the need to connect effectively with those around you—whether the goal is to form powerful teams, establish rapport that leads to results, or gather information to make informed decisions.”

More than any other skill, success as a leader rides on the ability to guide conversations that get results. Conversations are the linchpin, the central cohesive anchor, supporting leadership success in the 21st century.
