The process of transferring information between a sender and a receiver is called communication. Communication involves a sender, a receiver, a message, and the use of a medium, but one must be careful of the noise that may interfere with the communication process.
A good leader is a good communicator. The Presidency of the United States of America is one of the most important leadership positions in the world. In the past year, there have been and still are candidates seeking to be President of the United States. All of them have had their share of problems when it comes to communication.
George W. Bush has his own style of communication. For fear of an extremely negative expression on my perspective of Bush, I shall not comment on that —- oops.
One United States President stands out in American history in the area of communication skills. The legacy of that President lives on in that regard as he was called The Great Communicator. Regardless of political perspective, whether one agreed or disagreed with his politics, President Ronald Reagan had charisma that complemented his communication.
Whether the next President of the United States is able to be a great communicator is any one’s guess at this point.
To assist the candidates for President improve their communications skills (or anyone else for that matter), I suggest looking at Communication & Leadership.
