Generally speaking, I try to not do much commentary in my other blog, Roland's Ramblings, that I like to think of as a sort of almanac of random facts and information; it's like going into a book store and randomly picking up different books and then randomly reading various pages.
Oh, here I am rambling on again. Well, anyways, somehow, some commentary squeaked into Roland's Ramblings today. Consequently, I figured why not put some of that entry here as well. Ergo, below is an excerpt of that posting:
A good leader is a good communicator. The Presidency of the United States of America is one of the most important leadership positions in the world. In the past year, there have been and still are candidates seeking to be President of the United States. All of them have had their share of problems when it comes to communication.
George W. Bush has his own style of communication. For fear of an extremely negative expression on my perspective of Bush, I shall not comment on that —- oops.
One United States President stands out in American history in the area of communication skills. The legacy of that President lives on in that regard as he was called The Great Communicator. Regardless of political perspective, whether one agreed or disagreed with his politics, President Ronald Reagan had charisma that complemented his communication.
Whether the next President of the United States is able to be a great communicator is any one’s guess at this point.
If your interest is aroused, you may read the full text of the entry with its embedded links that I think are interesting, informative, and educational, by visiting the Roland's Ramblings entry Communication and Leadership.
