“Hello, Dr. Sharkey! I’m the CEO of a mid-sized marketing firm. Every one of my employees deals with various projects at one time and is extremely busy. Recently, I’ve received feedback from our weekly employee polls that employees actually want to communicate more with managers and company leaders. How can I -- and our company’s managers -- communicate with employees in a meaningful and authentic manner without monopolizing too much of their already busy work schedules?”

How can I effectively communicate company goals to employees in various departments in a way that will get everyone on the same page and increase business outcomes?”

In preparing our young talent for the future, I’m realizing we don’t have a specific course of action for communication development.
