Blah, Blah, Blah . . . Reorg Coming . . . Blah, Blah, Blah

by Michael Holland    

From a recent CEO:  “We have a lot to do. The most pressing thing I heard from our town hall meetings  is the desire to clearly define our vision and strategy. I promise you we will be transparent and plan to articulate this in the coming weeks.”

What employees hear:   “Blah, blah, blah . . .more work . . . blah, blah, blah . . . reorg coming . . . blah blah, blah . . . co-workers are going to lose their jobs . . . blah, blah, blah . . . some exec is getting a big bonus . . . ”

When you start talking as if you are the focal point in a Dilbert cartoon it might be time to look behind you and see who exactly has followed you over the hill.

Coaching Thoughts – For You and Your Peers

  • How can you talk to your employees about potential changes, etc. without sounding like the focal point of a Dilbert cartoon? Try to come up with some concrete ideas.
  • What are some ways that communication between leaders and employees falls short in your organization? What steps could you take to begin to improve this?
