About this Guide

Employees want to have a voice and be heard, respected, and involved.

These Top Tips will give you the tools to create and nurture the communication environment both you and your employees want in the organization.

You will learn how to create the desired environment characterized by trust, openness, transparency, sharing and engagement – and avoid the negative environment you don’t want: closed, opaque, say-do disconnected and siloed.

The tips will walk you through:

  • How to Communicate
  • What to Communicate, and
  • How to Listen - perhaps the most important communication skills of all
