This book provides an understanding of the leadership concepts and team-building strategies that business and professional communicators working and interacting in 21st-century organizations need to master. The text’s skills emphasis, together with its focus on developing the global and technological competencies that support the enactment of leadership, promotes in students the ability to think critically and imaginatively and communicate effectively as they also learn how to inspire confidence, foster innovation and build an effective team.
Leading with Communication addresses leadership from the students' perspective, facilitating (via various pedagogical features) in them the ability to express themselves, engage in visioning, build on glocal, global and technological experiences, and work collaboratively and creatively with others. In the process, students will hone fresh perspectives on how best to integrate skills and knowledge, build trust and elevate worker performance, and nurture their leadership and teambuilding talents.

The text is organized well and easy for my students to understand. The Theory Into Practice and Post It sidebars helped students with understanding and applying the more abstract concepts from the in-text information. For myself, it covered the material I deem most important to the study of leadership in group communication.
Good book for students: well laid out, easy to follow, well done!
Skill building and basic theoretical approach
A useful overview of the importance of good communication for effective leadership. The book is well laid-out, easy to read and I think the encouragement to reflect on one's own capabilities is a very useful tool for continuous skills improvement.
It is valuable to have a text that addresses such a 'nebulous' topic as communication, and which does so in a manner that is useful and not patronising. Worth using.
very practical Handbook
is clear and very useful for my students
Managers and leaders fail because they do not recognise the importance of communication in their organisation. Teri Kwal Gamble has pointed out vital issues they need to consider in this regard.
