Everybody talks about communication nowadays, but very few show to actually understand its meaning.
As far as business in concerned, I can surely say that companies managed by extremely communicative leaders are much more likely to be successful than other “old style” companies.
Well, first of all, communicative leaders are inspired AND inspiring. It means that they have dreams, visions, and even if they maybe don’t know exactly how to get from point A to point B they will most likely find “technical” people to help them achieve those targets.
Second point, they are able to communicate their dreams and visions to their collaborators, from the beginning – the recruitment moment. So the communicative and inspired leader has dreams and visions, and sets up a start-up. She/he hires the right people, inspired as well, and they start working together. These people squeeze their brains not to let down their boss, and always try to find new solutions (to optimise the workflow, or any other kind of thing that can help the company). Most of the time they work overtime even if this is not requested, and for sure they give 100% of their talents in the workplace.
Is there still anyone out there who doesn’t understand how crucial communication is and how much it can actually make a difference to build a successful business?
Apparently, yes, and thanks to them those who excel can do it even better!
So, thank you, uncommunicative leaders, for giving such good examples of what NOT TO DO to create value. The world is not that big and there is not that much room for everyone, and bad examples as just as precious as the good ones.
