Leadership Communication


Effective communication is a foundational leadership function and a vital characteristic of a competent leader. Given the unique role that leaders play in driving change and leading others through challenges, communication for leaders is much more complicated and nuanced than for individual contributors. Leaders who are skilled communicators create mutual understanding, harmony, and action by adapting their communication styles based on situational factors. Harnessing the power to communicate effectively is one of a leader’s most critical skills, especially during crises or significant setbacks.

Learner Outcomes

  • Determine their natural communication style and identify strategies to improve their communication
  • Identify what distinguishes effective leader communication from other forms
