Are your messages misfiring?
“They misinterpreted the message”
“You just don’t understand”
“Don’t you read your emails?”
“How many times do I have to tell you?”
“I even showed you a PowerPoint presentation!”
Most people in a corporate environment tend to believe that they are ‘a good communicator’.
Trouble is, it’s not up to the communicator to decide. If a presentation, video, brochure, website, blog is not understood and acted upon, it’s the fault of the one delivering the communication; not the one receiving it. This is why so many messages are not acted upon, or misfire completely.
How to get ACTION from your Communication
If you convey a message … but nothing changes, then you may have just wasted your time. Every time you communicate it’s usually to create or in response to ‘change’. The purpose is to achieve a corresponding change in habits, attitudes and work processes.
And to do this, there are six things we help you consider:
We won’t bore you with all the details on how we do this here, but just imagine how much easier life would be if we could communicate using telepathy …
We could work out what MESSAGE we wanted to TRANSMIT … because we’d be conveying pure thought, ENCODING and DECODING the message wouldn’t be necessary … RECEPTION would be perfect and free of any INTERFERENCE, allowing our idea to be send and received perfectly and without misinterpretation.
Sadly (well, lucky for us … or we’d be out of business) life isn’t quite like that.
We help you with all these factors to get your message across.
Why Communications ‘Consultancy’?
You know how a videographer sells you video … a web-designer sells you web design … a designer sells you a brochure … and so on? Well, we sell YOU. Your message … your products and services … your idea … your brand. We put your business objective first and then ‘sell’ your message. The objective comes first, the medium or how we convey it comes second.
