The Leader as Communicator: Strategies and Tactics to Build Loyalty, Focus Effort, and Spark Creativity
Robert Mai and Alan Akerson
Communication is an essential element of leadership. This resource provides an original model of the roles required of leaders in today's organizations. These roles include trust builder, critic, navigator, provocateur, learning advocate, and renewal champion. The Leader as Communicator is based on case studies from such organizations as Cadillac, Emerson, General Electric, and the U.S. Army. The publication also includes quotations from such noted authors as Peter Drucker and other experts in leadership, and it concludes with an assessment exercise that allows readers to measure their own communication skills.
