According to Alison Doyle, via The Balance, listening is tops.

Doyle states:

Being a good listener is one of the best ways to be a good communicator. No one likes communicating with someone who only cares about putting in her two cents, and does not take the time to listen to the other person.

It’s also important that your message is direct. It should be clear, but brief. This is No. 3 on the list: clarity and concision.

Rounding out the top 10 are the following skills:

1. Listening

2. Nonverbal communication

3. Clarity and concision

4. Friendliness

5. Confidence

6. Empathy

7. Open-mindedness

8. Respect

9. Feedback
