NYC's mayor wins even more kudos

NEW YORK: Mayor Rudy Giuliani has won another accolade for his

post-September 11 communications.

Nearly half the respondents to a recent survey by Stanton Crenshaw

Communications (SCC) said corporate America should take a page from

Giuliani's playbook and offer calm and clear communication. They also

suggested business leaders be as sincere as the NYC mayor.

Niki Peters, the SCC senior account supervisor who coordinated the

survey, said regular, hourly communication was a big factor in

Giuliani's appeal.

"Seeing him, people were calmed, and that calmness was why he was rated

so highly," Peters said.

The survey, performed October 20-21, queried 1,000 respondents about

communications techniques and leaders.

Over 70% said a business or government leader's communication skills and

style affect their view of the person's competency. Perception of

intelligence outranked compassion, courage, sincerity, and confidence as

the most important trait.
