Communication competence is the ability to communicate one’s wants, needs, and thoughts to others in ways that help them maintain or improve the current state of their relationships.
Competent communicators have the want, knowledge, and skill to communicate with others in ways that can keep the emotional tone of interactions positive, supportive, and nonthreatening.
They also keep the content of their communication appropriate for the context in which the communication takes place,
and can employ strategies to manage conflict during community communication when it occurs.
Competent communicators want to maintain positive relationships, know which behaviors are appropriate for various situations and can perform the behaviors effectively.
To develop intercultural communication competence a person needs first, extensive knowledge of the culture, a detailed understanding of the culture’s, values, beliefs, and behavioral patterns.
Second, fluency of primary language or languages having knowledge of in the skill to appropriately follow semantic-pragmatic and syntactic rules of the language or languages used by the cultural group.
And third, a great deal of interaction with members within the culture.
When interacting with individuals from a foreign culture, an additional set of attributes is necessary.
For example, a person must have a relatively high tolerance for ambiguity.
When interactions include people from two or more different cultures,
one needs to be fairly comfortable communicating with people who may have different ways of interacting and behaving than one is usual.
For instance, a person needs to be able to cope with situations where she or he doesn’t quite know the rules,
May not be fluent in the language being spoken,
and may or may not agree with the views of others.
A person should be able to change her or his behavior to accommodate the cultural expectations of others in the communication situation
A person practices empathy when trying to understand and mentally experience other’s situations and perspectives.
Mindfulness occurs when a person actively pays attention to a communication situation and takes into consideration the ideas and behaviors of others.
It is important to note that one does not necessarily need to agree with what she or he observes during an intercultural interaction.
Empathy and mindfulness help a person to understand why others think, communicate and behave the way they do and to respect why they value their perspectives.
People are not born with how to communicate with others.
Communication is something that has been learned, just about anyone with enough practice can learn to communicate competently across a wide variety of situations.
Critical thinking Competency
Critical thinking is challenging to specify and understand.
It’s not just a simple and straightforward process we can accomplish on autopilot.
It does not come naturally to us, instead, it needs practice and discipline to master.
There are many components of critical thinking competence which need to be mastered in order to become an effective critical thinker.
An effective thinker, as opposed to an ineffective thinker, must have the skills necessary for the job such as judgment, attitude, and competency as well as certain skills such as reading comprehension or analysis.
Critical thinking is an intellectually trained process of progressive and skillful design, application, analysis, and reasoning of data from various sources in order to make informed opinions.

Many advantages. At work, you can use the following steps to develop critical thinking and present your
Recommendations to superiors and colleagues.
Using this, you can solve many solutions in many situations.

Leadership Core Competencies shape how we lead and what we do as leaders.
They determine the impact we have on our team and organization.
Key Leadership competencies can be categorized into two categories:
- Personal competencies,
which are those that relate to individual leader behavior, and
- Organizational core competencies,
which are those that relate to the environment in which the leader operates.
Personal core competencies include awareness, self-governance, empathy, social competencies, judgment making, and emotional ability.
Organizational competencies include management style, courage, and expertise.
One of the main leadership competencies examples is Trust
there are a lot of skills you need as a leader, but the most critical by far is the ability to create a stable trust in trust,
when there is no trusting relationship, projects fall apart, clients go to competitors,
but Contrary to what most people believe, Trust is not some elusive quality that you either have or you don’t have,
in fact, creating trust is something you can get good at
and far faster than you might have thought possible,
in my experience, many teams are over-managed and underled if
you want to learn the defining skill
that can transform you from a manager to a leader, then learn trust
it’s trust that turns a group of people into a team
it’s trust that turns a vendor into a true partner
it’s trust that creates a strong brand
Grow to trust the stronger your culture the better your performance and the more enduring your results
