Leadership Assesment: Communication

It’s time to take a look at my communications skills. On some of these questions there could have been some confusion as to whether they are referring to my public speaking or to my abilities to to keep communication lines open. This is probably my fault but we will operate on the premise that these questions are all referring to my communication lines. They seem to trend that way.

Here are all the questions that I asked concerning my communications skills. As stated in the last post, all questions in this evaluation followed the same form. Two extremes on a scale of 1 to 5. Here were the three questions that I asked and how I scored.

Is a poor or good communicator?: 4.27
Is cloistered or is out and about in the group?: 3.73
Communicates poorly or well with other organizations?: 3.09
Tends to be non-communicative or communicates frequently?: 3.64

My overall communication score was a 3.68

I have always know that communication is a weak area for me. Some communications get put off until they are last minute are even late altogether. It is something that I am working on but still have a long way to come. In light of how much of a weakness I know it is, I didn’t do too bad. Here is my review.

You are great at the art of communication but you tend to avoid it under certain circumstances. This seems even more obvious when the communication is with people or organizations outside of your immediate circle. While your communication is well stated and perhaps even persuasive, it is not nearly frequent enough.

My Advice: I would suggest creating a various channels for communication. When something that needs to be shared comes along, start plugging it into those channels. It would also be a good idea to put one person in charge of these channels. Communicate it once to them and allow them to start to disperse the information.
