About This Episode

Some of the highlights include:

The Problem

  • People are disconnected – lose connection and trust
  • One of the main influences on behavior is peer pressure/group think. If you lose connection with colleagues, it’s easy to start thinking “everybody’s doing it” kind of thing.
  • It’s easy to think that leadership doesn’t care
  • They may feel invisible, i.e., no one will know about their bad behavior.
  • It’s hard to get airtime on comms channels

People are multitasking more than ever

  • There are also new risks – privacy, gifts, etc.
  • It’s sometimes harder to do the right thing. Resources are not as readily available.

Creative Comms Can Help

  • Need to find ways to increase your visibility
  • Short commercials advertising resources – doesn’t take a lot of time.
  • Provide to leaders to play prior to zoom meetings
  • Embed on intranet and newsletters
  • Embed in other departments trainings and newsletter
  • Commercial
  • Integrity Themed Talk Shows – showing your people talking about the issues and challenges…but not a talking head video
  • Needs to be interesting to stand out and needs to be interesting so others will carry the message on your behalf
