Leadership and the Importance of Appropriateness

It’s usually not the message that hurts a potential leader’s impact.

Instead it’s a lack of appropriateness.

There are four factors to keep in mind:

  • Appropriate timing
  • Appropriate topics
  • Appropriate wording
  • Appropriate tone, volume, and non-verbals

Before you deliver your message, ask yourself if it’s appropriate. You might honest and caring, and still be incredibly ineffective if you are significantly inappropriate.
