Effective and Evolving Communication

Effective communication is critically important to success for us as individuals as well as for organizations. Of particular importance is the ability to communicate, understand, and provide feedback on the strategy of your organization. To be effective involves understanding both the elements of effective communication (including clarity, transparency, adaptability, empathy, and even humor) as well as techniques to deliver the communication (using technology, group/individual, top down/bottom up).

The resources provided here explore both the elements of effective communication and innovative techniques to deliver effective communication. They also provide evidence of the quantifiable impact of effective strategic communication, including to an organization’s bottom line, and predict the future of communications. This collection of information will be immediately useful in improving your everyday communications whether you are a leader, an individual contributor, or run your own business.
