Use Your Human Words
Michael Marotta, Director Colleague Communication, naviHealth

There’s a science to effective communication.  The good news is that it doesn’t involve rockets. Even better, everyone already has the most critical success factor for doing it well—we’re human. The bad news is that—especially in times of crisis—most people stop thinking like humans. Often, they string together a bunch of words that sound impressive but say very little. As HR leaders, you’re in a terrific position to influence what people hear and how they act when they hear it.

In this session, we’ll talk about a few simple but essential concepts that can help you reduce the noise and deliver real human communication:

  • Be true to your culture
  • Manage messengers and messages
  • Choose familiarity over frequency
  • Build credibility by listening

Cost: This is a complimentary webinar but registration is required and space is limited.
