It hardly needs saying, but we’ll say it anyway! Managers and leaders have to connect and communicate really well with their teams for internal communication programmes to reach their full potential. (Not to mention the impact on the overall employee experience!)
An amazingly creative, well-thought-through communication and engagement plan will only work if leaders and managers are ready, willing and have the right skills to inspire others into action.
We’re familiar with the very real day-to-day challenges in complex and ever-changing environments, because our specialist leadership development team have themselves been leaders. Meaning our approach is authentic and relevant.
Most engagement or communication programmes will need some leader or manager development within them. It might be as simple as giving useful guidance on how to get a specific message across. Or perhaps a range of activities that will have a longer-term impact – things like skills development, performance coaching or psychometric-based training.
