Leadership is communication

  • Communicate a vision. Communicate needs. Communicate challenges. Communicate principles. Communicate expectations.
  • The more important the information, the more it must be repeated. Say it different ways, in different contexts, and in different mediums.
  • It’s usually better to communicate the key point inelegantly than to delay the message until you can polish it. But know when that’s not the case. (See: Done is better than perfect.)
  • Communicate what you’re going to do before you do it–with your boss so they are in the loop and can sign off, and with your team, so they can provide feedback.
