Background & Process

A client was struggling with the distribution of ongoing change messages to over 4,000 managers and engineers. These were tough messages and their people were resistant to change. Crafting the message and planning its release was not enough. The Internal Communications Team realised there was a behavioural change that needed to take place within the organisation. This recognition was the turning point. Individuals needed the skills to own a message and have confidence when placed under fire by their subordinates and colleagues. Identifying the right audience for Think On Your Feet® was critical. Front line managers and senior managers attended the training. This:
  • Supported the behavioural change top down
  • Gave the management teams a common language
  • Skilled key people in the communication standards of the business
Over 400 individuals were trained over a 2.5 year period.
