The State of the Sector highlights the top challenges facing internal comms professionals. Always among the top challenges is the lack of line manager communication skills. Unfortunately, two-thirds of managers are uncomfortable with communication and having tough conversations with employees. Manager comms skills pose a challenge because many companies don’t have a way of directly reaching all their employees. This forces companies to rely on the cascade of information through managers, putting managers in the hot seat to communicate all company information with their teams. So, it falls to internal comms and HR to teach, coach, and instruct managers on how to be effective communicators. One great tool for your managers are Team Huddles where they can recognize their teams, share messages from corporate, and open the door for two-way comms.

But don’t expect your managers to always know what to say in these meetings. Let your managers set the cadence, but give them talking points, checklists, and the resources they need to make the most of that team meeting.
