As we dive back into the daily challenges that leaders face, we encourage you to continue to read along and share your thoughts with us.
One of the tough issues leaders shared with us last year was the challenge you face communicating through the noise and distractions of our busy and technical world. The following quote highlights both the challenges leaders face and the importance of communication.
The need for clear communication increases in direct proportion to the level of volatility an organization faces. Volatility is characterized by lots of noise. By noise, I mean signals that lack relevance. Volatile situations are also rich in the potential for confusion and unintended consequences. In such situations, the quality of leadership is invariably a reflection of the clarity of communication regarding where the organization is going and how it intends to get there.
During September we will be sharing ideas and resources about:
- How to get your message heard
- Using stories and emotions
- Cutting through the distractions
- Dealing with a bite-sized world
- Customizing and tailoring your message
- The importance of dialogue
As always we would love to hear what you have discovered that could help others.
