Great leaders have superior connection skills. They are great communicators!  What must we do to become great communicators?

When I coach leaders, I send them a brief note to help them become stronger, more engaged communicators. I share some of these ideas with you in hopes you share them with your team.

If you feel inspired by these ideas, write a few of your own to share with your teams. Make them part of your own leadership brand.

When a team member says something powerful, capture it in writing and share with your team. It lets people know you’re listening! There is nothing more powerful to a person than knowing they are heard and respected.
