A question which comes up repeatedly in leadership: “What role does communication play in becoming an effective leader?” Leaders communicate their vision and strategy, and inspire higher levels of performance, while providing practical verbal and written direction. How well is their message communicated and received? Is the result improved performance and commitment? What practical situations require a refined level of communication? Does listening and trust contribute to a leader’s communication effectiveness? Since communication is the lifeblood of any healthy relationship, leaders must communicate effectively to breathe life into the laboratory organization. As Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. said, “It's about communication. It's about honesty. It's about treating people in the organization as deserving to know the facts. You don't try to give them half the story. You don't try to hide the story. You treat them as - as true equals, and you communicate and you communicate and communicate.”
