    Leader Communication Misconceptions

    Leader Communication Misconceptions

    It's not enough to be good at what you do. You have to be able to tell about it. But communication isn't as simple as talking, writing, or even listening. 

    In this episode, consider five communication misconceptions -- and see if you're falling into these traps!

    Misconception #1: That others understand what you mean.
    Misconception #2: That talking is communicating.
    Misconception #3: That writing equals communication.
    Misconception #4: That listening is "not talking."
    Misconception #5: That others will ask questions when they need clarification.

    Every one of these misconceptions will cost time, money, and relationships on the job -- all things you can't afford.

    Take a listen, and be sure to subscribe for upcoming episodes.
