Well, this is my first blog on timmooreonline.com. I felt compelled to do this because I am beginning to realize that communication is the key to finding success in almost every area of our lives. Good communication is necessary for a healthy marriage, for a healthy working environment and for a healthy spiritual life. And yet a lack of communication is the one thing that most people complain about when they think of leadership.
I was reading something today that kicked all this off. I was reading someone else’s blog and said (and I paraphrase), “The reason people question decisions made by leaders is because they don’t understand why the decisions are being made.” And I realized that if I want to be a good leader, I must get better at communicating who I am and why I make certain decisions. That doesn’t just come from saying, “Because I want it this way”, it comes from people understanding who I am and what I believe.
And that is the Starting Point for this blog. We all have to start somewhere.
