Along with a fair amount of fish, life for the average penguin is all about change. Their environment is constantly shifting……
The same can be said for the majority of internal communicators too – change is very much the new norm.
But one key theme of IC that isn’t likely to be shifting any time soon is face-to-face communication – there’s no better way to communicate. Frequent and regular time with managers to help employees understand what’s going on in the business and provide context and meaning will likely form an essential part of any communication strategy.
Our latest infographic takes a penguin’s eye view of the team huddle, and shares some of the tips and ideas that we as comms pros can pass on to managers and team leaders looking to maximise on those face-to-face moments.
We’ve taken our visual inspiration from John Kotter’s Our Iceberg is Melting, which waddles through a powerful framework for influencing teams using some rather clever tactics… and it’s packed full of penguins too 🙂
