Episode 33

Is it true that communication is the most essential leadership skill? And if so, what are the biggest keys to leadership communication? To address that, our guest today is Terry Pearce, author of Leading Out Loud: A Guide for Engaging Others in Creating the Future. This is the bestselling guide to authentic leadership communication, and the newest edition of this book has just hit bookstores. Terry had many years of experience at IBM and Charles Schwab, he’s taught leadership communication courses at Berkley and the London Business School, and for the last couple of decades has been coaching and consulting with CEOs and elected leaders.

Find out why a leader is not a “change agent,” as often declared in popular literature, but rather a “creator of progress.”
