- You know how companies struggle with getting their messages across to their employees, customers, partners and Wall Street.
I solve that
I work with these companies to put together a team that charts an integrated communications and leadership development plan and then we implement the plan through a consulting engagement.
Here is a high level overview of our engagement process:
- We start by netting down your messages to its highest level of clarity
- Then we look at how to align the leadership team around it
- Then we put the leadership team through facilitated interactions to help them develop their ability to deliver these messages with clarity, enthusiasm and impact to all stakeholders starting with their own teams.
- Take action today if you'd like to get this process started for your organization.
- The team I bring together includes several disciplines
- Corporate communications
- High impact leadership communications
- Leadership development
- Inclusion and diversity
- Strategy consultants
- Executive coaches: speech delivery, voice and content coaching
