In business, change is constant. Communicating it can be a challenge. You need to show empathy, you need to explain why the change is occurring, and you need to make your case for the change and persuade employees to get on board.
While every situation is different, there are some common message themes that I’ve developed over my many years in internal communications that can help you communicate change more effectively.
You don’t need to reinvent the wheel. I’ve packaged 12 messages as a free download for you. These messages can be easily modified to fit any change management situation. They are battle-tested messages developed in multiple companies in multiple industries. They are great for Town Halls, CEO announcements, and Manager Messages.
Please let me know what you think. Would you modify any? Do you have any that you’d add to these? Drop a note in the comments section below. Let’s help each other out because hey, it’s tough out there.
