Inspiring Change Through Authentic CommunicationsSatisfaction:
Much has changed in the business world since the original publication of Leading Out Loud, Terry Pearces classic on authentic leadership communication. Now more than ever, the development of a leaders message is as crucial to success as the delivery of that message. In this new and revised edition, Pearce explains that the events of recent years, including the September 11 tragedy and numerous corporate scandals, have caused a loss of confidence and increased the importance of authenticity in leadership and building loyalty to organizations. The revised edition still shows leaders in business, politics, and non-profit how to communicate their values and vision to inspire commitment, providing action steps and techniques and analyzing speeches by well-known leaders to give readers concrete methods for improving their communication. But Pearce also focuses more on everyday, spontaneous communication, and how to develop a message that works in any situation. He explores the internal work necessary to create an honest and compelling vision, and demonstrates how readers can find their authentic voices and articulate their messages with confidence.
