I’m sure many of you are familiar with the work of author and practitioner Brian Solis, of the Altimeter Group. Brian made the point that in today’s media environment, we no longer simply communicate with an audience – we communicate with an audience of audiences, because the people who hear our message are themselves connected individuals with a networked audience of their own. I submit to you that in today’s media environment, as leaders – whether we recognize it or not – we are no longer simply leading a workforce of employees or, in my case, Sailors. We are leading a workforce of communicators.
