Lean Quote: Art of Communication is the Language of Leadership

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.


"The art of communication is the language of leadership." — James Humes

When you’re leading a group of people, communication is everything.

When it comes to working together, communication is the most important skill that any leader can have.

Communication is the key aspect that brings your message to the masses and allows an organization to move towards a shared vision. 

Having a vision that drives us towards building a company is one thing. The other is the ability to communicate with your employees. There are tons of reasons why leaders should do it.

For example, if leaders want their employees to be engaged, they need to find a way to build a relationship that will allow them to share their vision, so employees can execute it.
Without it, there are just employees who work and leaders who want to conquer the world. Nobody wants that, so if you’re a leader, find a common language with your workers and practice it on a daily basis.

It’s simple. When you talk, you just repeat what you already know. When you listen, you might learn something new.

Without good communication skills, your leadership is void.
