Walking the Talk: Leading By Example And Its Impact On Internal Communications
Jessica Pontarelli, Administration and Communications Specialist | Brown University
We have all heard some iteration of the phrase “Don’t talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk.” How often do we actually put that phrase into practice as individual leaders or as a leadership team? Leadership can exist in many forms— an executive, a director, or a manager of a team are considered to be holding traditional leadership roles.
In our role as internal communicators we are tasked with the vital responsibility of being leaders on multiple levels. We have a unique opportunity to be the kind of leaders that bring validity and integrity to our words by backing it up with the actions that match. Employees rely on us to communicate essential information that they need and to do this in an honest, appropriate and accessible manner.
In this session, we will look at the importance of these values and how implementing them into our work helps to create a positive and inclusive workplace. We will look at techniques that assist us in knowing our audience and researching the proper channels to reach them. We will work on strategies to hold ourselves to a high standard of communicating, both ethically and transparently. We will learn the importance of walking the talk and the benefits to our workplace environments by doing so.

When the average human attention span has fallen below that of a goldfish--it's no wonder it's become harder and harder to break through to employees.

This session will dive into clever and strategic ways to overcome some of the most pressing challenges communicators today face—audience overload in the age of digital distraction. We'll cover how internal communicators, the sources of essential knowledge and connectivity, can breakthrough to get the message across loud and clear.

Reality Check: Creating Employee Councils to Impact Employee Experience
Kamna Narain, Internal Communications Advisor | CK Consulting
Effective internal and change communications begins with understanding where your employees are and then chalking a path to get them to where your leadership and organization wants to see them.
The difference between a rocky path and a smooth ride is the voice of the employee - framing things the way they need to hear it and addressing the cracks in the road that you may not be seeing.
Employee advisory councils and boards are a tried and true practice that communicators often look over because of lack of time and resources.
In this interactive workshop, you will:
