This workshop gives your mangers and supervisors the skills and tools they need to effectively act as the primary communicators of the organization's mission, strategy and goals. Studies indicate that employees look to their immediate supervisor to get the key information they need about their job, the developments that are taking place in the organization and the way these will affect them.
But without training, the supervisors often do not know how to fill this role effectively, leaving employees frustrated and angry, and causing false information to spread through rumors instead.

- Review of existing communication policies, publications, and vehicles, indicating strengths and weaknesses of each.
- Summary of comments of focus groups and interviews.
- Report of the employee survey results.
- Recommendations for strengthening your communication programs.

2- You take these tools and perform the audit in your organization. You conduct the interviews with executives and stake-holders, hold focus groups with employees and compile the results. You will find the criteria and questions to ask for these processes included in the program.
3- You get the criteria, tools, and methodology to review and conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your current communication strategy, policies, publications, messages, and media.
4- Being a Template in MS Word, you can use the content “As Is” without the need to re-type, or modify the content by adding your own language.
5- You will save thousands of dollars compared to hiring a consultant.
6- The benefits go beyond saving money:
Conducting the audit yourself provides your communication / marketing, or HR staff, volunteers, or interns working with you an invaluable opportunity to hear from employees about the critical questions of strategic importance to the organization (that we help you articulate) and present it to management..
What is a Communication Audit?
The Communication Plan Template reflects the following Seven Principles of Strategic Organizational Communications:
1- Organizational Communication is a management process..
with a specific business purpose and disciplined methods of development, implementation, and measurements. It is accomplished through a strategic communication plan reviewed and approved by senior management.
2- Organizational Communication is a change agent.
The purpose of communication is not just to convey information, but to influence behavior. It influences behavior by persuading people to take action toward the organization's objectives.
3- The primary responsibility for internal communication lies with all managers and supervisors.
The Organizational Communication unit is responsible for designing and delivering the system and tools that enable managers to play their role as communicators. Face to face communication with the immediate manager is the most effective form of communication, and is the way employees prefer to receive information relating to their job.
4- Communication is a social process.
Communication is a social process based on openness, sharing, and participation. Communication must recognize and leverage the human need for knowing and relating. Communication must be open, flowing vertically and horizontally throughout the organization. Communication must encourage and utilize user-created-content.
5- To be understood, communication must be grounded in the interests and language of the receiver.
While it seeks to achieve the organization's strategic objectives, it cannot do so effectively unless it uses a receiver-focused approach in both content and context.
6- To be noticed, communication must be compelling and continuous
As it must compete for the receiver's attention, communication must use highly compelling and creative ways to deliver its message. To be remembered and internalized, communication needs to be continuous and consistent. We cannot afford not to communicate.
7- To be influential, communication must be credible.
Without a high degree of credibility, the integrity and believability of the message will be lost, and the whole communication process will be a waste of resources.
