Leadership Promises - Importance of Clear Communication

"Now then Samuel said to the people, "Come, let us go to Gilgal and renew the kingdom there." So all the people went to Gilgal, and there they made Saul king before the Lord."  1 Samuel 11:14-15
Leadership Promises - Importance of Clear Communication
Leadership Promises - Importance of Clear Communication.
Leadership resources and studies tell us that having a message doesn't matter if leaders don't know how to communicate that message clearly and motivate others. It's amazing how God wired us. We listen to leaders as they fling thoughts and ideas about the room, and then we want to get up and pursue those ideas. That's the power of communication.

Each time Samuel spoke, he followed the rules below:
  • Simplify the message - He spoke forthrightly, clearly, and simply. No one wondered what he meant.
  • See the person - He always empathized with others. He knew his audience.
  • Show the truth - He demonstrated credibility with his passion and his life. He lived what he said.
  • Seek the response - He always spoke with a purpose. When finished, he urged the people to obey God.
