Note from Phil: This is a guest post from Christian Warren, author of Running with the Rhinos. I don’t have time for long discertations on how I can be a better leader, and I love the simplest of management lessons. This article is great for its simplicity and its ease of application.

Here are 5 ways to deliver communications that inspires your team:

  1. Honor and value every individual in the group. Imagine that you are having a one-on-one conversation with each person in any group you’re speaking to.
  2. Be yourself at all cost, no matter the topic or group.
  3. Don’t fall back on the same automatic language habits you’ve always used. Continually ask yourself if there is a better, more efficient, livelier or fresher way to say something.
  4. Change your language and figures of speech to keep the attention of your team members.
  5. Spice up your speech with poetry, dazzle your audience with alliteration, and pack your words with punch.

What else can you think of to deliver communications that inspires your team?
