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 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.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 7:27 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.

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite

Developing Mindful Leaders for the C-Suite | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Focus, clarity, creativity, compassion, and courage. These are the qualities of the mindful leaders. They are also the qualities that give today’s best leaders the resilience to cope with the many challenges coming their way and the resolve to sustain long-term success.

 

The real point of leverage — which though it sounds simple, many executives never discover — is the ability to think clearly and to focus on the most important opportunities.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 10, 11:22 AM

It concerns me when we see mindfulness as a "real point of leverage". That diminishes the meditative purpose underlying it and shifts it to a calculative way of thinking. Don't we already have enough of the latter and not enough of the former?

Peace Overtures's curator insight, March 11, 6:36 AM

The important thing is to have a regular introspective practice that takes you away from your daily routines and enables you to reflect on your work and your life — to really focus on what is truly important to you. By doing so, you will not only be more successful, you will be happier and more fulfilled in the long run.

Chris Shern's curator insight, March 12, 3:08 AM

Things are not changing as fast as the world around and within business. There are still far too many managers in a world with an increasing need for mindful leaders.
