Communicative leadership is, of course, about communication. Actually, it is an old expression that came into being in the seventies but which has had a fairly long way to go to become as popular as it is today.

Communicative leadership is an approach more than a leadership style because it requires everyone's participation and that the company trusts the staff's opinions and listens to them more than in traditional top-down organizations. Good communication between employees, management and stakeholders is the prerequisite for the model - and for the company to be successful.

Communicative leadership requires managers with a fingertip feel and “ear to the rails”. It sounds like clichés but are incredibly important in their meaning for communicative leadership to have a chance to work. The boss is the boss, but the smart thing is that the model creates greater feelings of participation in all parties. Not all managers have the strength and self-awareness to be a communicative leader.

The disadvantage of communicative leadership may be that questions and decisions end up in long benches and that many chefs make the soup you make bland in taste. Here it is the manager's job to decide which issues benefit from communicating more to create just one team - and which issues are souring too many opinions and thoughts. Another problem to overcome is to create an environment where everyone is involved and that there are different ways to do it. Some meeting professionals love to talk about nothing. Some people have good ideas but may be afraid to put them forward.

Wikipedia information about Communication

Kommunikation Kommunikation består av många komplexa processer, som mycket förenklat ofta sammanfattas med endast själva överföringen, vidaresändningen, av information från en punkt till en annan. Ofta ses kommunikation som en tvåvägsprocess där det sker ett utbyte av tankar, åsikter eller information, oavsett om det sker via tal, skrift eller tecken. Deltagarna har ofta någon slags överenskommelse om mål, orsak och form för kommunikationen. Kommunikation studeras bland annat inom området sociologi, lingvistik och medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap. När denna överföring sker via elektroniskt medium benämnes tekniska aspekter av denna elektronisk kommunikation. En enkel kommunikationsmodell är: Ett tankeinnehåll uttrycks exempelvis verbalt av en kommunikationsdeltagare. Det som uttrycks fungerar som en signal till en annan kommunikationsdeltagare som i sin tur gör om signalen till ett tankeinnehåll. Därefter kan den personen ge någon form av respons. För att kommunikation ska anses ha ägt rum så räcker det inte med att signalen, informationen eller budskapet, tagits emot utan det förutsätts att det har skett någon slags förändring, eller start av process, hos den mottagande deltagaren. Först då anses en gemensam, communis, delning ha påbörjats. Exempelvis så har ingen kommunikation skett så länge den vidaresända informationen i oförändrat tillstånd bara nått en hårddisk, en bokaffärs bokhylla eller den automatiska telefonsvararens lagringsmedium.
