To develop communication skills is to develop leadership skills; it is appropriate to use the term leader/communicator as a title that combines both attributes. The key to understanding leader/communicator strength, Michael Hackman contends, is understanding our own communication style as well as the communication styles of anyone we might wish to influence: our staff, our colleagues, our bosses, our customers, our vendors.

In this Executive Forum presentation, Hackman breaks the discussion into several key elements:

  • The role of communication in leadership
  • Identifying and understanding our own communication style
  • Successfully interacting with other communication styles
  • Organizational Trust: what it is, what it has to do with communication, and why it matters to leaders
  • The role of corporate vision
