Conscious Communicator Tip #16 – Communication Sin #3: A Lack of Immediacy, Pt. 2 (

This communication sin should probably be called communication procrastination, as I argued last week.

So, why do we do this to ourselves? What is the cause of communication procrastination?

Procrastination in any form is FEAR!

What are we fearing when it comes to our communication?

Fear of saying the wrong thing!

Fear of being judged!

Fear of upsetting someone else or hurting their feelings!
Fear of our ideas, opinions, requests being rejected!

Fear of being held accountable to what we claim!

I could go on. The list of communication fears is not quite infinite, but there are a lot of ‘em.

Which of those fears will you admit to?

It’s not politically correct for leaders to admit to fear, but I’ve found many open to admitting to issues with procrastination. Someone other than me needs to call them on their fallacy.

When you identify the fear holding you back from communicating in the important contexts, then we can work on it and develop strategies and skills to take effective action so you can begin building the self-confidence and self-esteem to raise your effectiveness as a leader.

Next month, I’m going to try an experiment to see and I’d like to invite you to participate.

I’ve decided I’m going to offer up to 5 complimentary Communicate to Influence Strategy Sessions to leaders who would like to breakthrough whatever communication and performance challenges they are experiencing, with themselves, their teams, or direct reports.

Typically Communicate to Influence Strategy Sessions are $497, five subscribers will get one for free during the month of May.

To grab yours now, before they’re gone, go here to apply:

’til next time, make it a great week!
