I’m responsible for what I say.
Except, if you are a leader, actually you are responsible for what your team understands.
Leading people means being able to articulate the vision clearly for understanding.
Once they understand, they perform in unison.
This means what you say important, and how you say it is importanter 🙂
So, yes, you are responsible to ensure that we understand what you say.
You are responsible for ensuring that your customers understand your value proposition, that the full bench of the judges understands your case, that your constituency understands your views before casting their votes for you.
Invest some of your time to being articulate and telling stories that resonates.
