Coaching on Communication

August 11, 2010 — Leave a comment

Communication is a vital skill for a leader. 

It allows you to effectively teach, inspire, and share your vision with your followers.  Communicating effectively allows you to move faster when leading because you don't have to stop and answer questions to the people you are leading.

Communication is a skill that I've worked very hard on the past couple of years.  I'm in a local Toastmasters group and recently gave my first "Ice Breaker" speech to our club.

As my blog readers, I'm interested to hear your feedback on my talk.  My outline and talk content are below.

Do you have any tips for my communication?  What do you believe I do well as a communicator and what can I improve?

Thanks in advance for your feedback on how I can improve my communication as a leader.  I believe what Steven Covey said is true:

"It takes humility to seek feedback.  It takes wisdom to understand it, analyze it and appropriately act on it."

Your role is to give the feedback and I look forward to analyzing it and appropriately taking action on it.
