Leadership Communication

Introduction to Leadership Communication

Welcome to this Webpage. It is designed to introduce you to leadership communication.  According to Deborah J. Barrett in Leadership Communication (McGraw-Hill, 2013),

"Leadership communication is the controlled, purposeful transfer of meaning by which individuals influence a single person, a group, an organization, or a community.

Leadership communication requires using the full range of communication abilities and resources to

  • Connect positively with audiences
  • Overcome interferences 
  • Create and deliver messages that guide, direct, motivate, or inspire others to action."
