Write Like a Leader

Regardless of what industry or profession you are in, if you’re a leader you’re a writer.

Think about it, how many emails have you sent today? How many internal memos have you drafted? What about creating a presentation for the board, or the mission statement for your company?

Sloppy or ineffective writing in any of these instances can reflect poorly on your leadership abilities.

Deepak Chopra, a widely respected Indian American author and public speaker, once said that “enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness were we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.”

The power of these 11 tools and the confidence that made you a leader will drive your success and the success of those around you to heights you never imagined possible.
