Leadership Is A Relational Skill by Scott Edinger at Forbes on 6 May 13.

The author provides seven steps to improve your ability to relate to others:
  1. Express genuine care and concern
  2. Establish high standards
  3. Bring in the perspective of others
  4. Share relevant information
  5. Role model the behaviours you want to see
  6. Clarify your understanding
  7. Provide your reactions and candid opinions
“One of the factors explaining this phenomenon is that leadership is a relational skill; it is about how you interact with others. Sometimes we relate well, and other times not so well, but how we relate is always having an impact on our leadership effectiveness.”
