Analysis and Communication

One of the greatest challenges to any area of leadership involves communication. When communication lacks clarity, the result brings confusion and frustration. How can leaders analyze and communicate their vision, mission, and values more effectively?

Use easy to understand language. Terminology is important.

Be careful about assumptions.
Do not make the mistake of assuming.

Keep the message concise. Avoid sharing everything. Less is more.

Remember the old K.I.S.S. acronym.
Keep it short and simple!

Consider these ideas when trying to analyze and communicate matters of vision, mission, and values as leaders.

A Leader’s First Words…

Think about the first words we speak each day or when we greet someone. 

There is a children’s book simply titled First Words. The design of the book is to help children with some of their first words, words like refrigerator, rhinoceros, broccoli, clarinet, harmonica, dandelions, octopus, and basketball. I know what you’re thinking.

However, think about the words we use as leaders. Are our words clear and easily understood, or do people need a dictionary to find out what we are talking about?

The Bible teaches us to be careful about our words and how we use them. Leaders should be those who speak first, speak well, and speak clearly.
