72: The Importance of Effective Communication in Leadership [Communication Series]

Communication is one of the most important aspects of leadership. We get it wrong a lot. But we can get better; it’s possible to learn to communicate more effectively. 


In today’s conversation, we’re going to talk about the importance of effective communication in leadership, and we’ll share some principles for healthy communication. This is the first in our new series on communication.


For the purposes of this series and this conversation, we’re considering communication to include everything we say and do as leaders.


Words, actions, non-verbal cues, tone of voice, written messages, social media posts… these are various ways we communicate as leaders.


So clearly, this is a big issue, and there’s no way we can cover it comprehensively during this series. But we hope to bring you some useful and helpful conversations to encourage you to grow in this area.
