1. Listen carefully: To learn more, listen better. Leaders who earn a reputation among its people tend to listen carefully, give the limelight, involve their employees, their views agree with you linking them to business objectives. They know to take advantage of ideas and observations of their employees. That if even meetings be well structured, balanced on the actors and interventions, preventing malfunctions and sterile confrontations free and personalizes leadership.

2. Meet with small groups: For greater impact and more efficient meetings, gather a small, coherent, and complementary and potentially generate positive synergies. We must take advantage of these acts around to intervene “to not speak” and create a great environment around the action plan, objectives, tasks, etc.

3. Show confidence in yours: The main ingredient of intimacy, a close relationship with the your undoubtedly trust. A trust must go both ways. Before you ask employees must show to trust them, but is basically useless. Can you trust your employee’s potentially sensitive financial information? If not you may need to work hard with them before this point. And the lack of confidence is all a readily in itself.

4. Be yourself: with your strengths and weaknesses, but you should be aware of both. To become a better communicator, you must be who you are. It is difficult to gain trust, if we get commitments choose of ourselves. The leaders who take seriously their people appreciate the value of authenticity, and assume that people be honest sometimes means being vulnerable. Do not hide behind a veil of corporate governance. It’s convenient, but gives no miracles after analyzing more than fifty proposals we are left with four. But the point is that we leave your opinion and your own ideas.
