Leadership Communication from the President

How to Communicate Like Barack Obama

Be real

Girding all of these styles is a rigorous sense of discipline. We rarely
witness him going off-message; he is not shy about keeping things close to the
vest, especially to the media. He and his aides stay on message, and that is one
reason the Obama campaign succeeded.

Obama has the verbal fluency to make his points crystal clear. His challenge,
as it is for all leaders, is to ensure that his words serve as prompts for
action rather than rhetorical flourishes.

Or as they say, words are cheap; actions are what counts.
