Prove Your Worth: Create Measurement Dashboards That Will Blow Leadership Away 

March 18, 2021
1:00 PM

Leadership doesn’t care about clicks and opens. One-size-fits all dashboards usually fall flat. Metrics are important, but only represent part of the picture.
If you want to go from being the “company Kinkos” to a strategic counselor, you have to prove that you are changing employee behavior. You need to demonstrate how your communications are helping your organization succeed. This webinar will show you how to create dashboards that let your data tell your story. You’ll learn:
  • How to figure out what you should be measuring and what data you need to pay attention to
  • How to find the right balance between metrics and behavior change
  • How to build “behavior statements” that will be the core of your measurement dashboards
  • How to present your data in a way that tell your story and will blow executives away
  • How to keep your dashboards updated and current

Respect Your Employees: Write for the reader, not the approver!

May 20, 2021
1:00 PM-2:00 PM

Great writing is at the core of everything we do: articles, social media, e-mail, bulletins, even videos. Unfortunately, most “corporate writing” just isn’t good enough. Nobody wants you to “shift their paradigm” or “leverage their core competency.” We need to harness the power of what works in the real world. This webinar is all about the fundamentals of powerful, effective writing. You’ll learn:

  • How to strip the jargon out of your writing once and for all
  • How to write in a conversational fashion while still being professional
  • The power of headlines, leads, quotes, and verbs
  • Writing for the modern Web
  • How to “write tight” and respect your readers
  • How to write for the reader, not the approver
