Where there is a void in communication, negativity fills it. – Jon Gordon
As a leader, you can never provide too much communication. But that’s not to say that volume of words equals good communication. Great communication is arguably one of the most important components of great leadership, yet it is something most leaders struggle with at different times – myself included. So, today we’re talking about the importance of communication in an effort to get better together.
In today’s conversation, we cover the importance of what we’re communicating, things like:
- Clear mission and values
- Expectations and goals
- Organizational changes
- Care – providing the necessary resources
- Trust in team members
And, who we’re communicating to:
- Internal team
- Board of Directors
- Leadership program participants
And, if you listen in, you’ll even hear some strategies on how we communicate!
Communication definitely isn’t easy, but it is critical to great leadership. I hope this podcast will encourage you to examine your current state of communication and, no matter where you are today, take it up a notch for the betterment of your team and mission.
