Communicating as a Leader
As a leader, I’m fascinated by the political dramas that are playing out in front of me as both the U.S. and Canada are in the midst of election cycles. Knowing that communication through words, images, and story is a core tactic for persuasion and influence on leaders, I’m intrigued to watch how the communication of facts and realities is used and abused. I recently perused one of the fact-checking websites that seeks to isolate the verbal missteps of politicians. Articles from the website used words like “misrepresented,” “no evidence,” “not exactly accurate,” ”wrong,” and “impossible to prove” in response to various political communications.
