Communicating and Leadership: Learning Not to Put it in Writing

Source: Scott Paine
The last presidential debate is over, the video in the archives. The facts have been checked and rechecked and debunked and debated. The analysts have drawn their conclusions and offered their prognostications about the effects. The pollsters are in the field and will, over the course of the next week or so, report to what extent and in what direction public opinion has moved, and what the outcome of the election is likely to be.
Even before the debate began, however, I had a good idea of a topic that would come up in the debate and that has huge implications for leadership. A lesson we all should learn based on what this campaign has revealed.
That lesson has to do with email. Not the specific content of the hacked emails from the DNC or John Podesta, nor the State Department emails being released by the FBI. There are serious concerns that some of these emails raise; I’m not making light of that.
But there is a general lesson in the use of email, a lesson for all of us who aspire to lead.

Thought about RMPE?

As I wrap up our first online meeting for the League’s Risk Management for Public Entities (RMPE) study group, I would be remiss if I did not let everyone know of this group, once again, and how it can help you obtain your RMPE certification.
