All too often there is a missing link in the best employee communications programs—we don't enable people managers to be active and engaged communicators.

To be effective, a manager communications program must identify and remove barriers to communication (real or imagined) that managers have and train them to be communicators. Done well, a manager communications program can transform your employee communication efforts.

Turning managers into active, engaged communicators will amplify your communication efforts and cross the "last mile" to all employees, and turn those managers into one of your best sources for listening to your organization.

During this workshop, you'll learn:

  • How to work with managers to identify and then overcome barriers to spending time on communications efforts
  • Why expecting managers to actively communicate requires communications training
  • How you and your team can effectively train managers on communications—no need to wait on other departments
  • How managers can be one of your most effective "channels" both for amplifying information into your organization and hearing back from employees—and how you can easily provide the content to fill the channels
  • How to keep your managers engaged and actively communicating after training
