Strategic Decision Making and Corporate Communications probes the complex ways people process information and make decisions. The knowledge to formulate a message that considers the situation and audience expectations can make a leader’s communication highly effective, whether for a CEO responding to a product failure, a restaurant manager announcing layoffs in an economic downturn, or a hospital manager announcing a no-visitor policy.
The workshop identifies factors that influence corporate communication techniques, including stakeholder, media, and firm characteristics. Participants also examine key message properties to address when developing crisis communications based on an assessment of a firm’s situation and reputation management.
