ISO: Leaders Who Desire Authentic Communication
Today’s communication landscape is confusing.
Too many inputs.
Too many variables.
Too many “alternative facts” and contradicting theories.
Our technology, our political rhetoric, and a never-ending news stream are driving division for profit and for votes and our employees, our communities, and our families are confused, frustrated, and quite frankly, exhausted.
This is the world we live in, THIS IS 2021. This is where we find ourselves … So what can we do about it? What can you do about it?
For those of us willing to take responsibility and become a part of the solution, there is a simple solution.
Simple … but not easy.
We must focus on what we can control… We must become the change we seek in the world.
Authentic Communication in real time is increasingly becoming a rare and valuable commodity.
Leaders who develop and possess this skill are, and will continue to be, sought out and highly compensated.
The beauty of this is that this skill is available to all of us. Anyone who is willing to accept the responsibility of leadership and then to do the work and put in the time can build skills in this area.
What do we mean by Authentic Communication?
At The Communication Gym, Authentic Communication is the ability to communicate your motivations, your intentions, and your expectations with confidence, courage, clarity, and integrity. This one skill sets effective leaders apart from the pack. By developing our ability to speak clearly and simply within our circle of influence, we can each become a lighthouse in a turbulent ocean of information and miscommunication. With practice, commitment, curiosity, and a willingness to expand we can be a beacon for those who are lost in this sea of inputs and distractions.
