My comment: I have posted various previous blogs around the theme of leadership.  In part, leadership is about effective communication of your ideas and objectives. To be a great leader, one must have followers who believe in you.  A necessary prerequisite to gaining that belief is effective communication of your ideas and ambitions. One can have all the passion and vision but if those attributes are not expressed in a way that resonates with those you need to convince, they will, effectively, fall on ‘deaf ears’.

Part of being an effective communicator lies in understanding how you express yourself. This article talks about various influencing styles and how you can assess your own.
