Chicago, IL, October 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Despite all the pressures of our fast, demanding world-where employees often feel disconnected and leaders struggle to articulate overall strategy and priorities-some companies are thriving, motivating their employees, and generating enviable successes. So what’s their secret? Strong leadership that understands the importance, value, and art of great communication. But the truth is great communication isn’t really a secret. It’s a skill that anyone can learn, that anyone can master, and that any company and its leaders can use to thrive. In his new ebook, Mastering the Art of Messaging, internal communications expert David Grossman lays out the essentials of a great strategic internal messaging plan with the end goal of helping leaders and communicators create clear, consistent, and credible messaging that connects to target audiences.
“I based Mastering the Art of Messaging on the award-winning strategies of The Grossman Group’s messagemap,” said Grossman. “And I know from years of experience that consistent implementation of these strategies is directly responsible for new levels of employee engagement, for the successful implementation of corporate-wide changes, and for measurable business growth at some of the world's most respected and valued companies that are leading in the area of communication (and business results).”
In Mastering the Art of Messaging, leadercommunicators learn not only how to identify core messaging, but also how to shape it differently for disparate employee groups, how to align team leadership, and other essentials for creating strong leadership through messaging.
Additionally, Grossman highlights what a strategic messaging plan should encompass (and what it shouldn’t), how to identify the right tone and content, what media are appropriate for which messages, and other essential elements that ensure consistent and effective communication.
