The Communication Game
Enabling IC Teams to maximise their confidence, fulfilment and business impact
Internal Communication is…
…the only business activity every employee does. (Not everyone manages people, or budgets, or IT systems, or does sales, etc. But everyone communicates.)
It also pervades every other business activity. So it’s pivotal for any organisation’s success.
a unique challenge:
If you run or are a member of an Internal Communication Team, you face a challenge which won’t be experienced by any other business specialist.
Rightly or wrongly, your clients may easily think they know how to do your job every bit as well as you.
This can often make it tricky to call the shots unless you have a strong mandate.
an innovative approach:
One way of developing your mandate is through having working practices which no one can argue with. The more demonstrably fit for purpose they are, and the more demonstrably valid those purposes, the more likely people will be to go along with them.
That’s why the Communication Game practices we teach: whether language standards, briefing process, feedback management etc, are all DFVP: Demonstrably Fit for Valid Purposes.
a supportive ethos:
One of the challenges with planning any professional development is knowing where to set the bar for yourself and your colleagues. With all your other work commitments it’s not a good idea to over-stretch. But nor would you want to sell yourself short.
That’s why we offer you a risk and cost-free workshop, to help you and your team understand how high the bar can go, so you can start working out where to set it.
