Leaders need to continually develop new skills (and improve on current ones). But there is one skill that, hands down, is more vital than the rest.
The ability to communicate clearly and effectively.
In sales, management, training, marketing, and executive leadership – in every career role – nothing matters more than communicating effectively with others.
That’s why I spent so much time writing about Clarity. And, that is also why I have a partnership with a company that specializes in communications training.
Led by a published author with a PhD, who lectures at Wharton Business School AND who has many years of experience in the life sciences industry, this partner does workshops (and keynotes) nationwide.
As we all know, attention spans are getting shorter and shorter….
…so it is up to us to train our colleagues in the whole range of communication skills (including facilitation, slide design, writing, and interpersonal collaboration).

I agree with you that communication is important in both professional life and personal life and we need to polish it in order to excel in both them.
