“If you want to be a leader and you cannot communicate effectively, forget it. In the digital world, people think texting and tweeting is communicating. It’s not. You’ve got to be able to stand in front of employees and get them to go places they never thought they could get to. You need to have enormous communication capabilities. You cannot over-invest in communication skills.” Indra Nooyi
Carmine Gallo, who teaches communication skills to executives at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and wrote the bestseller Talk Like Ted, presented a handbook on the best practices of communication, the most important skill of a politician. Knights must have had their swords to survive. Politicians must have their words. Gallo is the messenger of the 21st-century sword masters.
