The Art of Communications I’ve often said there is an art to communicating. For leaders, communications can shape a more effective business strategy, when started early and often. It ensures ideas are understood when we think about the way, tone, and methodology in which we share them. Most importantly, communications can draw people in once we understand what is important to them. Communicating is intentional. Don’t leave communication to chance or as an afterthought. Nurture a culture where team members understand and believe in the strategy through regular, clear communications. In order to advance the mindset of team members, be sure to create transparency, align goals and set expectations. Communicate. Then communicate more. Most industries are in times of rapid change, which requires communicating. I would even say, over communicating. In the absence of information, human tendency is to fill in the gaps with what is thought to be true. As leaders, we are then left cleaning up misinformation versus being the flag bearer of our vision.
