The Managerial Communication of a Leader with Team Work

1.0 Introduction

The following essay will discuss the role of managerial communication within an organisation, by a leader that also supports and encourages team work.   Theory and examples will be applied to outline the current situation with leaders in organisations that conduct this type of behaviour.  A definition of managerial communication and team work will be discussed, followed by an analysis of how valuing employee relations and working as a team are important attributes of a leader, including notions of emotional intelligence and cross cultural communication skills.  The key characteristics of what managerial communication of a leader, with teamwork, will then be outlined and relevant theory will be applied; these include ideas concerning two-way communication and managerial leadership and trust.  The essay will then close with a conclusion that summarises the factors required by a leader in order to conduct managerial communication, with team work.

7.0 Conclusion

To conclude, managerial communication exists as a discourse that can provide organisations with an effective competitive advantage, particularly during a process where growth is key to that organisation. It was found that leaders who adopt the one way classical model of managerial communication often believe in the presumption that the recipient's, often the employee's, feedback is not required and that the information communicated by the sender should be clear enough to require no feedback. This managerial communication approach does not necessarily encourage team work, whereas the two-way communication model does and is therefore becoming the preferred method of managerial communication by leaders with the focus on team work. From large corporations such as Enron and WorldCom allegations of corporate fraud and greed have damaged trust within such organisations and as a result, a new form of managerial communication evolves in order to promote trust and team work in employees once again.  Factors such as emotional intelligence and cross-cultural communication have also been found to be important considerations for the leader of the organisation when carrying out managerial communications.
