Communispond® Analyzes How Donald Trump Defines ‘Leadership’
March 31, 2016

ROCHESTER, NY | EAST HAMPTON, NY, March 30, 2016 – Communispond Inc., the leader in professional skills training, analyzed how Donald Trump recently defined ‘Leadership’ at a recent Fox News debate. He said, “I’m a leader. I’m a leader. I’ve always been a leader. I’ve never had any problem leading people. If I say do it, they’re going to do it. That’s what leadership is all about."

Here is an excerpt from Communispond’s blog post in response to Trump’s views on what it means to be a leader:

“Effective leaders provide clear expectations, lucid priorities, consistent feedback and performance monitoring, precise direction, and timely correction. Leaders find the best in their followers and bring it to the surface. From the standpoint of a follower, implementing the leader’s will is not about carrying out orders; it is about self-fulfillment. That’s why we say effective leaders empower employees.

The “if I say do it, they’re going to do it” approach fits no one well and everyone poorly. Research confirms that effective performance coaching varies with the individual and the situation in order to maximize performance levels and maintain strong manager/employee relationships. The quality of a leader’s influence depends on their ability to be flexible in the way they coach performance. That’s what we teach in our leadership programs.”
