They listen as well as they speak well, and they are able to deliver crisp, nuanced, action-oriented and motivating messages to a wide variety of audiences. Thoughtful, persuasive leaders frame their communications in strategic as well as tactical ways, to maintain alignment of organizational and personal values, goals and objectives.
