Organizational Communication

Leadership v. Management

Leadership is a huge part in organizational communication, superiors of a company need to be on top of their employees to have communication go smoothly. My view on leadership is when superiors go above and beyond to complete what needs to be done every day. Communication between superiors and their employees should be exceptional. When asked to the employees by other people on how they like their superiors they should be able to talk highly of them. Superiors need to realize that their job is the most important and they can’t back down and be laid back. They have tons of responsibility and communication to everyone is number one.
