EXECUTIVE BRIEF

Empowering Leaders: How Internal Communications Teams Can Improve Leadership Comms

In Partnership with Andrea Greenhous, President at Vision2Voice Communications

About this Executive Brief

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, effective leadership communication is more critical than ever. Strong leaders inspire, motivate, and guide their teams toward success, fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and growth. And communication is the mainstay to making this vision a reality.

But there’s a divide between the communication that employees expect from their leaders, and what leaders are actually delivering today. According to Grammarly’s State of Business Communication 2023, only 55% of workers perceive communications from their senior leaders as effective—despite business leaders spending over 80% of their time communicating.

To bridge this gap, organizations must rely on their internal communication teams to build a connection between business leaders and employees, ensuring that messages from leadership are clear, relevant, effectively communicated and—most importantly—resonate with the workforce. But demonstrating the value of internal comms to business leaders can prove to be a significant challenge— one that requires a deep understanding of your leaders and employees, a data-driven approach to analyzing your existing comms approach, and tactical planning to develop an improved strategy.

This guide is your roadmap to unlocking the full potential of leadership communication through the lens of internal communications. We’ll explore the strategies, tools, and best practices that empower leaders to connect with their teams authentically, creating an engaged and informed workforce.
