The Algarve, Portugal's southern-most region has been a top holiday destination for Brits since the 1960s. The long stretches of golden sands, beautiful rocky coves and picturesque bays continue to attract holidaymakers to the Portuguese coast all year round.

How to get there

The only international airport on the Algarve is located just three kilometres from downtown Faro, so it's fairly easy to access the majority of resorts along the south coast.

There are 19 UK airports serving Faro Airport, so if you're traveling from anywhere in Britain, you'll only be around three hours away from the Portuguese sunshine. Other travel options include driving through the excellent network of motorways across continental Europe.

Once you’ve finished donating a boat to the charity of your choice, what’s next? When it comes to the final part of the donation process, everything must be carried out smoothly so your boat can be properly donated.

At this point, make sure your boat can be moved in a reasonable period of time as well as meet the person who will be picking up your boat.

When you think of the skills that are crucial for leaders, certain factors come to mind. Confidence. Quick-thinking. Consistency. Charisma. Another important skill? Effective communication; in fact, some argue that communication skills are the most important skills a leader can possess. Having a vision and a plan is not enough unless you are able to effectively communicate those goals and get buy-in from those you’ll be working with. If you can’t clearly articulate — in writing or verbally — your goals and how to get there, then you’ll most likely fall flat as a leader.

Barriers to Communication

Almost everyone has worked with a leader who lacked communication skills. Perhaps instructions were muddled — or you had no idea why you were doing certain tasks, other than you were told to do so.
