Webinar: Putting dialogue at the heart of internal communication

'Leaders need to be effective communicators themselves in order to connect employees to the business goals, by building a dialogue that engages employees, making them feel valued, motivated and invested in their organisation'

Broadcast: Tuesday 17 April 2018

In this webinar you hear from internal communication author David Cowan about the core ideas of why dialogue between leaders and employees matters. David talked about his effective communication tool, the Dialogue Box, and how it can help companies explore more thoroughly the kind of conversations they need to have with employees to address internal and cultural challenges; helping transform organisations into open and transparent communities to ensure workforces are committed to the overall business vision.
