To be a successful project manager, it is important to develop your Leadership skills. You need to regocnize the behaviours that define you as a leader. One such leadership skill is to know and develop your communication style.
It means you have a natural style of communicating. This is the way that is the most comfortable for you to communicate, it includes whether you prefer written (email or other) or verbal (on the phone vs. in-person) communication and whether or not you are careful and deliberate in your communications or more comfortable thinking out loud.
This includes how you like to send communication and how you like to receive it. You might prefer to walk down the hall to see someone when you have something to say, but you might want people to email you things when they have things to say so that you have them in writing or so that you can refer back to them later or add them to your calendar.
You also have an adapted style of communication, this means how we communicate when we are upset or under pressure or during a conflict.
It is important to understand your natural approach/style and your adapted approach.
Then you can begin to understand the styles of others and how/when your styles work with others or not.
There is a lot to consider. And the most important question; is your communication style working for you?
Overall how do you know?
