An executive’s job is to lead, which requires the ability to effectively communicate what needs to be done. Unfortunately, most leaders are time-starved and do not have much room in their schedules to learn how to communicate phenomenally. We’ve all been plagued by too-long speeches, boring presentations, and thrown together addresses—and we all hate it. So why is it still so common?

Lack of resources

Why It Matters
Since senior leaders are responsible to employees, customers, boards of directors, as well as the community in which it operates, excellent communication skills are vital. It is understandable that corporate leaders have endless tasks to complete and decisions to make, but an executive with great communication skills gets better results.
