Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 13, 10:53 AM

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an American actor, composer, rapper and writer, best known for creating and starring in the Broadway musicals Hamilton and In the Heights. He recently gave the graduation address at the University of Pennsylvania where he shared insights about personal storytelling. They are great!

 

I particularly like his focus on the stories you are NOT telling, and what this could mean. He talks about which stories to tell, whom to share them with, and the connection between your mission, vision, and values.

 

It's terrific stuff and a fab way to start out the week.

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

Leadership communication is much more than the words we say and how we articulate what we want to team to “hear.” Effective communication is also about emotional intelligence, knowing your audience and active listening.

(From the article): Stay calm and be positive. Calm is contagious. And so is panic.Smile. Carry yourself with confidence. And try not to wear your emotions on your sleeve. I am not saying to deny our normal human functions but be aware that effective communication is about 7% the words we say. The rest is about body language, tone and delivery.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 23, 9:19 AM
(From the article): CHOOSE YOUR CHAMPIONS WISELY Identify the two to three people with whom you already have an existing authentic relationship and whose skills, networks, or access support your own goals. Ideally these should be people who you would naturally advocate for and vice versa. You might work in the same field in different positions or hold a similar role in different industries. The point is that you'll want enough overlap to be valuable to one another but not so much that your networks are virtually identical already.
