Giving clear directions, practicing active listening skills and using non-defensive communication techniques improves leadership effectiveness. When performance expectations are made clear, and reinforced properly, the appearance of bias can be avoided. With improved communication, you’ll improve production consistency by increasing the accountability of your entire team. Through interactive  discussions and use of real life situations, you’ll learn several management strategies and when to use them effectively.
