Agile Leadership Requires Agile Communication
CEOs can determine a company’s leadership and communication style, but can’t really succeed without the commitment of the other management levels. Therefore, starting to use social media technologies and demonstrate inclusion instead of cascading communication.
It is the first step for a CEO to drive agility and with it business growth and customer satisfaction.
A truly agile organisation shows flexibility in all areas and, consequently, adopts an open, transparent and often non-hierarchical communication style. This is what agile leadership is all about. What better way to achieve this than by using all kinds of internal and external social media technologies? As Sir Richard Branson says: “Embracing social media isn’t just a bit of fun, it’s a vital way to communicate, keep your ear to the ground and improve your business”.
