Communication, an essential part of church leadership, makes such a difference in a leader's effectiveness in other skills. By communication we are referring to not merely transmitting information but exchanging information which requires that leaders also become good listeners.
To be a good leader, you need to learn to listen both to God and to people.
Listening to God is a means of:
- acquiring wisdom and understanding
- discerning His heart
- lining up with Him and His will
- letting God know you care
Listening to people is a means of:
- discerning needs
- learning if something isn't working
- acquiring new ideas
- letting people know you care
