Communications: Getting it Right

KnowHR, an organization communication consulting firm, has an absolutely great post on their blog. The post talks about “The Naked Truth About Great HR Communication”.

It is relevant not only for the HR folks, but professionals from different fields can all learn something important about communication from this. Out of the 35 points highlighted, my favorites are:

  • You’ll never get the exact right word.
  • The exact right word doesn’t matter.
  • If you write like people talk, they’ll get it.
  • Stock photography of impossibly happy and diverse employees is a joke.
  • Employees need stories to remember.
  • There’s no synonym for synonym

What are some of your communication mantras?
