Lessons in leadership are extremely important in organizational communication. Not only must communicators have the ability to deftly engage and counsel all levels of leaders, they must also recognize when leaders are unethical, ineffective, or when they pose other risks to the organization. This session will review the basics of effective organizational communication, the importance of a communication strategy, the role of different
communicators within the organization, training for better communication and methods for measuring results.
