Everyone thinks they’re an internal communication expert, but it takes in-depth knowledge and skill to deliver the most engaging and effective internal communication. So, the onus is on internal communication professionals to raise their game, be more strategic and add more value. To do this we need to:
1. Understand how internal comms can impact engagement
2. Be more strategic by applying the ABCDE Model – Audiences, Behaviours, Content, Delivery and Evaluation. This framework can be applied to communication challenges large and small.
3. Focus on adding value.
4. Earn a reputation as trusted advisors
