The Leader’s Greatest Ally – Rich’s Rule # 3

May 28, 2014

Rich's Rules TitlecardFace it...If You Can’t Communicate, You Can’t Lead!

The most prevalent challenge in your role as leader is effective communication.  History and evolution show that communication – especially verbal ability – is the most important skill a leader can possess. Communication is the great ally of leadership.

When asked about the BIGGEST challenge in the workplace, participants in practically every workshop I’ve conducted over the past 25 years have cited communication as the #1 problem. There are several areas, of which the leader needs to be cognizant of what’s being conveyed, including:

  • What you say to others both publicly and privately
  • The buzz in the organizational grapevine
  • Anything the media picks up
  • What you say to your self on a regular basis (creating reality through self talk)

For this reason, I’ve chosen Communicate Effectively, the most prevalent challenge of leadership, as Rich’s Rule # 3.
