The art of communication is something everyone can work on. We never become the greatest communicator alive. There will always be someone else.
Communication is the thing that can make or break the best leaders. Without clear communication, you will struggle to get people to listen to you, act on what you say, and be heard.
Communication is pretty important, huh?
How can you build your communication skills and, in turn, build stronger relationships and achieve greater success? Follow along; we’re going to take a look at a few ways you can do this.

Listening: The Most Important Skill
Wait, but you said we would learn about communicating, right?!? We are. And listening is the most important skill when it comes to effective communication. Read more...
In today’s day and age, authenticity is a crucial piece of the leadership puzzle. People don’t want fake, inauthentic leaders. They want someone they feel they can relate to because the person they’re following is real.
Sadly, too many leaders in the public arena aren’t authentic. They only claim to be.
Honestly, I’ve struggled with this as I’ve watched bloggers and leaders alike fall from their high horses. These leaders claimed to hold their marriage in high esteem. News breaks that they had an affair or abused their spouse. Some leaders say they value their faith. Only to have their actions betray their words.
These leaders all claimed to be authentic. None of them were. They put on a front they knew would sell books, garner an audience, and make them money. Read more...
Compassionate leaders are leaders who change the culture of the organizations they work in. When you have leaders who actually care about the people they lead, the employees notice.
A job goes from being just a job to something different. The job could become a mission. It may become a mission field. Or it may even become a lifelong experience.
With so many hard-nosed, angry, and frustrated leaders, we don’t see as many compassionate leaders as we should. Instead, we put up with cranky, tense leaders who make the working environment unpleasant.
You can change this. You just have to work on becoming a compassionate leader.

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon
. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.
Many people have said the Marvel Cinematic Universe has faltered lately. Sure, there have been flops with movies like The Eternals, but I believe the MCU is still going strong.
The latest film in the MCU, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania, proves that.
Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania takes one of Marvel’s tiniest heroes to the big screen for the third time. His first movie was fantastic. The second movie in the Ant-Man franchise fell flat. But… But… Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania brings back the character and fun we all loved from the original film.
Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania occurs many years after the first two movies. Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) has returned from The Snap caused by Thanos. He’s still struggling to connect with his daughter, Cassie Lang/Stature/Stinger (Kathryn Newton), because of the missed time with her. This lost time plays into her desire to learn, grow, and become something more. Read more...
Changing the course of your life and making the new year your best one ever is tough as it is. Sometimes we make change even tougher than it has to be.
Why is that? It’s because we keep the wrong people on our teams. We believe we have to take everyone along for our transformational journies…

When you don’t have to. You can change up your team. You put some people on the bench, “trade” them, or bring new people onto the team.
But knowing who is on your team will do you well. You need to know who is on your team and what their positions are.
