What's the one thing that leaders could do more of?


When it comes to managing projects, achieving your goals, and solving problems it is almost impossible to over-communicate. We tend to communicate less than we need when the stakes are the highest.

I work to remind myself constantly to communicate more robustly, more clearly, more creatively. To communicate with more courage and compassion. To communicate using a variety of ways (not just another email!) To constantly communicate.

How about you?

You probably aren't over-communicating.

High performance leaders over-communicate.

Not annoying missives. Not repetitive propaganda. Clear, concise, vision-focused communication delivered in a variety of ways:

- email (yes, sometimes)
- face to face (the strongest energy field for success)
- telephone (remember that?)
- voice mail
- posters
- videos
- presentations
- through intermediaries and spokespersons
- through endorsements
- advertising
- announcements

...You get the idea.

What's your most important message right now? How can you communicate that in more ways to the people who need that message the most?
