Without Effective Communication, There’s Not Effective Leadership
As a leader, it doesn’t matter how smart, honest, well intentioned, or hardworking you are if you cannot communicate effectively to people. Experienced business people know how rare it is to find someone who communicates effectively to “most” people.

The best plans and ideas never find success without good communication. You can have all the components of a great company—strong vision, good people, excellent processes and systems—but nothing will take flight without strong communication.
Without communication, there is no leadership. And without effective communication, there is not effective leadership.
