In developing my thoughts on 21st century communications, I pulled together the best-of-the-best strategies that work from our clients who are leading in the global communications arena, and from my travels. The result are the Top Ten Principles for leaders, organizations, and communication professionals.
My intention in developing these principles is three-fold:
- To continue to advance the dialogue on the critical topic of communications
- To elevate the importance of communications and how it’s inextricably linked to leadership
- To provide perspective on what’s possible (and possibly essential) to survive and thrive today
Here’s an overview of my Top Ten. Click on the links in the headlines for further information on the topics below:
Principle #1: Character is a differentiator
Principle #2: No ONE leadership style is preferred
Principle #3: There’s a greater need to imagine and advance a vision
Principle #4: People really are the greatest asset
Principle #5: Everyone is a leader
Principle #6: There’s a greater focus on self
Principle #7: Change is the norm
Change is constant and leaders increasingly need to be able to deal with ambiguity and adapt to change.
Principle #8: Employees everywhere have the same fundamental communication needs
Principle #9: More and better listening, individually, and systematically
Principle #10: The communication system is better honed to manage overload and inefficiencies
