Communicating strategy to your people

 

Having a clear strategy and vision for the future

In an ideal world, you’d be able to have a cup of tea with everyone in your organisation and talk to them about the big stuff. You could explain your long term-vision, your strategic plan and break it all down into digestible, relevant and inspiring information.

But our world is far from ideal.  Actually, it’s increasingly complex.  And, let’s face it, since 2016 with Brexit and the US elections, the world became a little odd and unpredictable!

In a time of ever-changing external factors that are impacting our businesses, employees want to know that they work for a company with a clear vision and plan for the future.

So, you need to think about things and develop the right communication techniques to share the big stuff, engaging your employees and reassure them that you have a clear vision.

 

Communicating your strategy to inspire and engage your people

The best corporate communications inspire your people. They make them feel part of something. With the right communication tools and a strong internal communication plan, it’s easy to talk about the big stuff.

 

Internal communication

Your internal communications strategy should be just as important as your external advertising, built on a rigorous understanding of communication strategy, audience needs, channels and measurement.

 

Strategic communication

Don’t be daunted by the big picture. Our visual thinking technique unravels business strategy and brings strategic internal communications to life.

 

Creating a compelling narrative

To change culture and behaviour, you have to talk the talk.  A clear narrative will help you to have one version of the truth that gives your people trust in your company strategy.

 

Communication with employees – the magic bullet

We’re often asked ‘what’s the most important thing to focus on when it comes to an internal communications strategy?’. We think it’s simple: put your people at its heart. Talk to others as you’d like to be talked to yourself. Make it simple. Bring humour in where you think it’s appropriate. But above all, be human.
