In our Compelling Communication Series (part 1, part 2, and part 3) we covered the strategic ways IT Leaders needed to incorporate better communication to connect with the business as a whole. However, we could not resist asking Alex Perry, CEO of Practically Speaking, back on the show to distill down the tactical “how” of engaging spoken and written communication. This may be one of our most actionable episodes to date as Jeff Ton sits down with Alex to find out exactly what steps leaders (and really, everyone) need to take to communicate more effectively, which Alex says comes down to three things — being concise, clear and commanding.
