MISSION: Accelerate change through proactive, credible messages that transition stakeholders from acceptance to commitment
Living through dramatic, transformational change can be disruptive. Uncertainty and the feeling of loss of control can distract employees. When faced with complex environmental change, successful organizations rely on strategic communications to focus their workforce, and help them to remain productive and engaged. Empirical research has shown that high quality change communications increases acceptance, openness, and commitment to change.
We help senior teams design and implement communication strategies for mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, cultural change, transformation, new technology implementations, and strategy changes. Every communication plan is unique based on the style, issues and priorities of the organization.
Our rigorous, communication approach has been field-tested under difficult merger and integration conditions.
