5 Communication Factors for Making a Good Impression

Communication is key to effective leadership. It is important to create good impressions when you are communicating. The following five factors are essential in the creation of good impressions during communications:
  1. PROJECTING AN IMAGE OF CONFIDENCE: Being confident is important, because it is difficult if not impossible for people to have faith in your capabilities if you do not show confidence. Whether you are confident or not, it is therefore important to create an image of confidence. This will also help you to develop or improve your level of confidence.
  2. DEMONSTRATING POWER OR INFLUENCE: In order to communicate efficiently, it is important to have a certain level of personal power and a certain degree of influence over others.
  3. EXPRESSING SINCERITY, INTEREST OR COLLABORATION: Another factor that is important is showing that you are passionate about your work. Besides being enthusiastic about your own work, being interested in the tasks and jobs of others is just as important.
  4. DEVELOPING TRUST: while you are communicating you are developing mutual trust.
  5. RECOGNIZING PERSONAL TENSIONS: Communication can become more effective if you are actively seeking for ways to improve it. Recognizing personal tensions is important because it means that you are able to improve those obstacles that are particularly troublesome for you.
