This week host Dale Dixon and leadership advisor Ron Price talk about the evolution of written communication as technology advances, and why these skills are more important for leaders now than ever before. Ron talks about the impression that a leader’s writing gives, why leaders should pay attention to their audience, and how the technical aspect of writing helps convey ideas. He also gives tips that leaders can use today to improve their written communication skills.
In this week’s episode, host Dale Dixon and TCL author and leadership advisor Ron Price discuss Diplomacy and Tact.
