  1. Communication

As a leader, you need to be able to clearly and succinctly explain to your employees everything from organizational goals to specific tasks. Leaders must master all forms of communication, including one-on-one, departmental, and full-staff conversations, as well as communication via the phone, email, and social media.

As a leader, you have to make a number of decisions that do not have a clear answer; you, therefore, need to be able to think outside of the box.

Learning to try non-traditional solutions, or approaching problems in non-traditional ways, will help you to solve an otherwise unsolvable problem.

Most employees will also be impressed and inspired by a leader who doesn’t always choose the safe, conventional path. Here are some skills related to
