Über dieses Buch

This book explores how contemporary governing leaders can overcome the typical trend of losing a public support in power by following more effective communication strategies. It shows how new forms of communication that emphasise acknowledgement and respect for public criticisms and concerns can be used by governing leaders to show the public that they still have the leadership qualities they entered office with, despite the extra challenges that political office presents. The book outlines a new model, The Contemporary Governing Leaders' Communication Model, through which leaders can communicate their positive personal and professional qualities in government. The book illustrates this model in use through the communication of United States President Barack Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key during their first terms in political office.

Chapter 1. Resolving the Listening versus Leadership Dilemma

This chapter outlines the changing relationship between political elites and the public. It outlines the challenges of political office contemporary leaders face in trying to both listen to the public to stay popular and make sound decisions to stay effective. This chapter does this to argue that effective communication is the key to balancing these two broad, yet sometimes contradictory, requirements of governing leadership. It will highlight how governing leaders’ communication is moving away from traditional, one-dimensional, selling and issue pushing and towards contemporary, multi-dimensional, relationship building. Therefore, this chapter will highlight a new model for governing leaders’ communication.
