Immediate impact is essential for Interim Executives

On Tuesday 19th of September Trudy Peeler, Head of Transport & Infrastructure, hosted an evening of wine, cheese and lively debate on communicating effectively and with impact.

Having immediate impact is essential for interim executives but technology has fundamentally changed the way in which we communicate. In this post-truth age of soundbites and over communication how do you make sure the way in which you communicate is having the positive impact you intend?  The Head of the Harvey Nash Leadership Consulting practice and Executive Coach Rachael Hanley-Browne led the discussion sharing her experience, insights and some tools designed to help people reflect on their own personal communication strategy.  The discussion ranged from communicating within ecosystems versus hierarchies, the trust equation, the effectiveness of different modes of communication to timing. However much of the discussion focussed on the Voiceprint model and theory of communication styles, their use and overuse and understanding how, with intervention, we could master all the different styles.

  “Understandably, we all tend to rely on our preferred communication style and rarely step back to consider how we could be more effective if we improve our range.  The ability to flex our style in different contexts is the key to success for Interims leading change” Rachael Hanley-Browne
