Communicating in Tough Times
Leading in tough times requires effective communication.
This week’s leadership tool outlines 3 communication behaviors that you should embrace when moving through uncertainty:
1. Be proactive; don’t allow the story to overtake your message.
2. Be appropriately serious; don’t come across flippant.
3. Be open to feedback; don’t create an environment where people won’t speak up.
