Yes! In today’s busy world where we are constantly bombarded with information, effective communication is surely more important than ever.
But how can you make sure that your messages get the attention they need?
As any good marketing professional will tell you, it starts with understanding your audience: What are their priorities and motivations? What are their preferred communication channels? What potential barriers might prevent them receiving your message as you intend?
More than this, the same questions can usefully be reflected back to ourselves: What are our priorities? Do we always use the most appropriate communication channels? What stops us sending messages that our audience wants to receive?
As senior leaders in business, we’d probably like to think that communication is something we already do well; we didn’t get where we are today without being effective communicators, after all. But it’s not just managers and directors who need to communicate effectively, we need to encourage our team members to do the same for the sake of efficient business and a harmonious workplace. And with busy teams or stressed staff, asking people to pause and reflect on their communications skills can be a challenge in itself.
The team at Maddison Coaching have put together a one-day event to explore all of these questions. In the beautiful surroundings of Norman Court School on the Hampshire/Wiltshire boarder, the presenters will cover a range of relevant topics, from models of communication theory to some practical exercises. It will give managers and HR leaders the tools and skills to cascade this learning to their staff and colleagues and should prove to be an enjoyable and thought-provoking day.
As well as hearing from CEO, Vicky Maddison, the main content of the day will be delivered by marketing and communications specialists, associates Natasha Spencer-Jolliffe and Claire Sutton.
