In light of our podcast on communication, I thought I would share some quotes on communication with you:

“Developing Excellent Communication skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership. The Leader must be able to share knowledge and ideas to transmit a sense of urgency and enthusiasm to others. If a leader can’t get a message across clearly and motivate others to act on it, then having a message doesn’t even matter.” – Gilbert Amelio

“Educators take something simple and make it complicated. Communicators take something complicated and make it simple.” – John C. Maxwell

“A Leader must get things done through others, therefore the leader must have the ability to inspire and motivate, guide and direct, and listen. It’s only through communication that the leader is able to cause others to internalize his or her vision and implement it.” – Danto Manquez Jr.

I don’t know about you, but I really connect with these quotes. Maybe you’re a great communicator by nature, and you don’t have to worry too much about how you communicate, but for me, these quotes really help me think about how I can be more intentional about my communication and what the end goal/result of my communication should be: “Simply inspiring people to internalize and implement the vision.”
