<? echo $type; ?> How effectively do you communicate?

Whether you lead a ministry or are a volunteer, how you communicate to children, students, parents, volunteers and coworkers, reflects the overall health of your ministry. This month’s overview podcast is by Reed Dickens.

Reed Dickens served as the White House Assistant Press Secretary for President George W. Bush during his first four-year term. He was in the White House on September 11. He was with the President at Ground Zero. He served as the President’s personal liaison during the invasion of Iraq. He is a frequent guest political analyst on Larry King Live, CNN, and Fox News. Reed helped found an extremely successful communication firm that provides media strategy, brand development, and crisis management to clients in many industries. Reed understands the principles of effective communication. When Reed talks about effective communication, others listen.

Whether you think you are communicating or not, you are communicating something all of the time. As you prepare for a new school year, I hope you will take a look at the principles of effective communication in order to clarify your vision and mission, and capture the hearts and minds of the children and students you minister to each and every week.

Tell us! What are some of the ways you have most effectively communicated to your children, students, parents, volunteers, and staff?
