Leadership consists of ‘influence’, ‘inspiration’, and ‘transformation’, and thus depends on effective communication. Leaders are constantly communicating through their words and actions. In fact, studies show that leaders spend most of their work day engaged in communication. Leadership communication can be defined as the controlled, purposeful transfer of meaning by which individuals influence others by using a full range of communication abilities and resources to connect positively with their audiences, overcome interferences, and create and deliver messages that guide, direct, motivate, or inspire others to action. This course is designed to help students learn how to communicate as leaders, thereby bringing about positive results for themselves and for their organizations or communities.
