Do you communicate effectively?

I read in a recent article published by one of the faculty at the Thayer Leader Development Group (MG Hashem), that "In order to be effective, a leader needs to focus on three elements: mission, people, and teamwork. Communication impacts all of these areas."

I think he's right in his arguments...what do you think about communication being the most important factor in leadership? What examples come to mind for or against this statement (or entire article) about the tie communication and leadership?

Please read the full article: http://www.thayerleaderdevelopment.com/blog/2015/communication-the-most-important-key-to-leadership-success

And feel free to comment!

An effective leader has to be an effective communicator. Without good communication skills any potential leader will fail because they need to be able to clearly communicate their vision.

Think of any great leader - Churchill, Gandhi, Mandela for example, and you immediately think of their speeches, things that they have said or written.

For me - the #1 thing a leader needs is time to think.

What are your thoughts on that?

Leaders don't always have the pleasure of time to think though, right? Communication of a vision can set things in motion to offer the leader more time to think and plan. Perhaps the words that we use are not as important as when we choose to use them...(going back to the great leaders listed above...) Is it leaders' words or the context in which they chose to use them that truly matters? And can you teach that kind of leadership?
