More than ever, being President of the United States means you need to be at the top of your game as a communicator. And no matter what you think about current or past presidents, each one had his own challenges and triumphs when it comes to communicating with the American public.

In this non-partisan episode of the Confident Communications podcast, I’m sharing how communication by our nation’s leaders has changed over time–from the written State of the Union to fireside chats that worked for one president and flopped for another and from our pop culture president to our social media president.

Each president mentioned can teach you something about how to communicate confidently as a leader. And that might be even more so from the non-president who might be considered our nation’s biggest influencer–both of his time and today.
