Shaping Change Inner Circle - August 2018

Welcome to the Inner Circle for August 2018.

If you haven’t joined the Facebook Group yet, you can find it here. It’s a closed group so only the members will see discussions and comments.


In the communication environment at every company, there are a few key traits that shape how much effort employees will devote to activities with the greatest strategic impact.  The most powerful trait is the degree to which a manager’s communication style is “inclusive”—in other words, encouraging employees to participate in dialogue.  That’s because dialogue helps employees make a personal connection to company goals and better understand how they can contribute.

Now, there are some managers who are excellent communicators, who naturally create opportunities for open dialogue with their employees, but we all know that many don’t.  It’s not that they never talk to their people—it’s just that they’ve got a job to do, and they typically don’t think about dialogue as part of that job.

This webinar is designed to help managers develop both the will and the skill to initiate dialogue with their teams.  Following this session, managers should feel far more equipped and confident in using dialogue to get the results that they want.
