121 ~ The Five Cs - Communication

In this episode we are going to delve into the fourth of the five Cs – Communication

And why this is so important.


Let’s review the recipe, otherwise known as the Five Cs as described in Judith W. Umlas’ book: Grateful Leadership – Using the Power of Acknowledgment to Engage All Your People and Achieve Superior Results


You begin with the first C – Consciousness; The  conscious realization that another person should be acknowledged

Then you move along to the second C – Choice; The choice to acknowledge that person. You know that you could choose to keep your acknowledgment to yourself. Or choose to impact another’s life by letting them know that the world sees something about them that is outstanding.

Then there is the third C – Courage; When one is speaking of Grateful Leadership and the Power of Acknowledgment, Courage refers to the internal strength to continue along the path to acknowledging  another person. It is the internal mental strength take that next step Especially when you don’t know how the acknowledgment will turn out.

Once you have realized how much courage you have within you, it’s time to move to the fourth C – Communication

Communication all begins from the heart. Remember, if the acknowledgment is sincere and comes from the heart, you can’t go wrong.

But HOW does one communicate it?
