Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators

Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
If you know a bad leader, chances are he or she is also a poor communicator. Here are the reasons why our leaders don't improve in communications -- even though we all know it's a critical part of the role.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Jenny Ebermann's insight:

Oh dear... as a leader you have to be a great story teller and motivator and that goes nowhere without communications.

more...
donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 2014 10:27 AM

(From the Article)  Leaders can find it simpler to avoid communicating, at least until they have everything figured out. So they retrench and put off connecting on key issues, which can quickly get out regardless as rumors. Or they rely on email or other written communications that, while better than nothing, can leave employees with more questions than answers.


Leaders, like all of us, want to do the activities that they feel good and successful at doing. Communications can be difficult to get right, and though important, all too easy to avoid – especially when you get to call the shots.
