“Communication is like a game of catch. There is a throw and then a catch, followed by another throw and another catch. In many changing organizations, there is just a lot of throwing.”
Inadequate communication continues to be one of the top three reasons change fails in most organizations. Many changing organizations rely on various forms of technology to communicate change information. This reliance gets them only so far, and it is usually not very far at all.
Communicating Change is a comprehensive, practical program that ensures changing organizations are up to the challenge of helping everyone wrap their brains, arms and heart around all the changes.
In this presentation, you will learn how to:
Explore the complexity of the challenge of communication facing every changing organization.
- Determine the essential principles behind the Who, What, When & How to ensure communication engages everyone.
- Apply a variety of helpful communication tools to the situation in your own changing organization.
- Outline a plan to significantly improve the level of engagement in your changing organization.
Who should attend:
Everyone in a changing organization who is in a position where they must communicate change related information. This includes supervisors, team leaders, managers, directors, executives, project teams and communication professionals.
