Module 5: Discussion Forum (Max 350 words)
Explain the impact of effective communication skills on employee behavior by comparing two leaders with whom you are familiar in either your personal or professional life. Alternatively, you may choose two leaders whom you have researched.
- Describe in general how these two leaders affect employee behavior through the use of communication skills.
- Briefly explain the many forms of communication used by top leaders in the modern organization to communicate and influence the organization.
- Do these leaders use multiple forms of communication in the organization, and how does that affect the behavior of others?
- Based on what you have learned in the module, do you find the leadership style of each leader as more autocratic or participative? How is this style demonstrated in their communication? Are there times when one style is more effective than the other? Explain.
