As a leader, you need to be able to provide innovative and resourceful solutions that stimulate your team to think and work more efficiently. But more than that, you must be transparent when communicating with people to create a powerful leadership culture that encourages richer contribution and deeper commitment.
The key management qualities that turn good people into great leaders include Trustworthiness, Depth, and Clarity. These building blocks lay the foundation that fosters genuine support and loyalty in any organisation, and they all contribute to creating a work environment with transparent communication.
Taking an in-depth and open communication approach provides an avenue for reflection, research, accountability, and clarification because your team trusts you. However, remember that your words have to be clear and simple during discussions, so that everyone is on the same page about how their work fits into the overall big picture. Know what to say, when to say it, and who to say it to.
