Leaders live and die by the way they communicate with their teams. Being able to explain things in ways that create clarity, purpose, and a sense of positive possibility gives people inspiration. Leaders must be sensitive to how they craft their message.

Because our messages as leaders are made up of words, the words we choose contribute directly to the impact and effectiveness we can create. In this episode I visit with author and coach Terre Short, Terre specializes in helping leaders reframe their messages with the right words so that they achieve better results.

Listen for:

  • The six Traits of effective leaders
  • Keywords that drain your message’s impact
  • Three ways you stifle your message
