Build Followers in Your Organization? Yes!

The rumors and gossip which can get out of control is often the result of employees knowing too little too late. If you want people to feel connected, accountable, and excited about the success of the company, you must develop and monitor leadership communications strategies. They need the “news” on both positive and negative aspects of the business before the media, customers and other external contacts know more than they do.

  2. Building the skills and talents of others and making employees partners in the process of accomplishing goals is not as easy as you think, especially for middle managers and supervisors. Their own success is based on their ability to engage and hold accountable each employee’s contributions to goals, including financial, continuing improvement, innovation of new processes, products and services, and fulfillment to your customers.
  3. Empowering your staff to continually improve, sharing your knowledge and experience generously, and pressing your team to achieve more are essential functions to calling yourself a leader in your organization. Too often, these three goals are overlooked in performance evaluations and job function accountabilities.
  4. Followers need to know what is expected of them, what is important to you, and how to make an impact they can be proud of with self-fulfilling rewards (as well as any actual incentives from the company). All of this cannot just be assumed. It takes ongoing, clear communications.

As we move into 2018, nothing could give you more value than identifying communications training needs for both your leaders and on a broader scope, your employees. I would like to meet with you soon to see how I can assist you with a communications audit, discuss your challenges, and determine aspects of your communications planning which can further you company’s business goals in the new year by giving more focus, better processes, and new measurable skills which will assist employees to do great work and achieve great success.
