Here are a few reasons why perfectly competent executives in their technical field may suddenly appear incompetent as general manager or managing director, when it comes to communication
This is so regrettable, because in most cases, it can easily be fixed.
✅ 1) There may be hesitancy at speaking clearly during meetings with different teams, or face to face with individuals
✅ 2) Micromanaging teams may be taken as a proven method to ensure
success instead of adopting more flexible method of communication
✅ 3) Preferring assigning tasks and control methods while totally neglecting
the power of speech to inspire trust and vision
✅ 4) Being too afraid to make a visible mistake in a public setting
✅ 5) Believing that a public appearance must be "perfect" , whatever that
may mean, when the real issue is about inspiring trust and authority in
your given field
✅ 6) Underestimating the power of humor in a public appearance, like a professional speech or presentation.
