What Great Communicators Do
In many organizations, communication stinks. This happens for a few common reasons. Leaders don’t have the skill to do it well. Leaders don’t have the time to do it well. Leaders don’t prioritize it. Or perhaps most problematic, leaders don’t even recognize it stinks. Whatever the reason, the net result of poor communication is confusion, frustration, and ultimately poor performance.
Great communication takes discipline, but once you get into the right mindset and develop good structures and processes it becomes second nature. And it becomes a competitive advantage, both individually and organizationally.
This ExecuNet Master Class session led by acclaimed CEO advisor and leadership consultant Doug Sundheim will focus on approaches and tools that great communicators use, including:
- Getting into the heads of your listeners – Getting out of your own head so you can clearly see what your audience is concerned about and needs to hear.
- Structuring communication – Using three tools to help ensure your communications are covering the most important things on people’s minds.
- Confronting tough conversations – Not shying away from difficult conversations and communications. Doing so only makes the next one tougher.
