While effectively communicating with the students in your online classes aids in the retention of your students, as educators, we should want to do more than just retain our students. We should provide them with a sense of community while enrolled in online classes to avoid the sense of isolation that some online students experience.
These are the soft skills that can help you and your team go from just surviving to actively thriving. Listen more carefully and responsively, acknowledging the feelings and wants that people express in word and mood. Compassionately allow people to feel whatever they feel.
What is Communication?
Start by putting together a centralized communication team. While decentralized communication be may desirable in large, complex organizations, in an emergency or fast-moving situation, you need a crisis communication team composed of key leaders.
From there, develop messaging for key constituencies, including your employees, customers, shareholders, and community. The author offers tips for communicating with each. The coronavirus epidemic seemed far away for me until last week.
Then came news reports about someone infected in New Hampshire. Rumors started to spread, closely followed by questions: How can we find out more information? Should we send the kids to school? The next day, we discovered in both the local and national news that the infected person, a resident at our local hospital, had attended a party with students from the Tuck School, where I teach, bringing the crisis right to my office door.
Classes and events were canceled and all international travel was suspended for the university. My mind was racing. Should I go in to work? Is it OK to buy lunch here? Are we prepared to quarantine at home? How long will this go on? In fast-moving and uncertain situations, many leaders face questions they may not even have answers to.
As someone who studies crisis communication, I regularly tell my students and clients that you need to communicate early and often with your key constituencies throughout a crisis. Approach the situation with empathy. You will sometimes get it right, and you will often get it wrong, but it is still better to be as transparent as you can.
Decentralized communications is understandable and even desirable in large, complex organizations. But in an emergency or fast-moving situation, you need a crisis-response team. With the coronavirus, we are seeing this happening at all levels: President Trump appointed Vice President Pence to head up the national effort.
Dartmouth, and many other universities, have created task forces. A school district I worked with this week created a team made up of the superintendent, as well as all of the school principals. Intel has a standing pandemic leadership team in place, as part of its business continuity planning. Ideally these teams should be small, five to seven people. You need to include a member of the leadership team, someone from corporate communications, an HR executive, and an expert in the area of concern.
This team should:. Employees are your most important constituency and function as ambassadors to the community. Studies have shown that leaders, in particular, have a special role reducing employee anxiety.
Customers require a different approach than employees given that companies do not have the same access nor frequency with this constituency. You should:. Of course, the situation becomes very different when your organization is at the center of a crisis.
During the fall of , seven people died after taking Extra Strength Tylenol, which was the best-selling painkiller on the market. Capsules had been injected with cyanide by someone who has never been identified. The company recalled over 30 million bottles of Tylenol, and created new tamper proof packaging.
It issued a national alert, telling people to stop consuming Tylenol products. It established a toll-free number for consumers to call with questions or concerns. It held regular press conferences from company headquarters. The epidemic has created intense volatility in the financial markets in the last two weeks and turned what was an incredible bull market into a potential recession. With earnings season just around the corner, publicly listed companies have a special responsibility to communicate the impact of the virus on their operations.
In addition, you should be paying attention to travel guidance and developing communication plans around your annual meeting, including setting up webcasts for shareholders. What happens within organizations around the coronavirus affects everyone in the communities around them. At the very least organizations should do their best to make sure their actions do not negatively affect members of the community, but you can also think about a crisis as a time to enhance relationships with the local communities in which you operate by:.
For example, as Lauren A. Cargill, for example, which has more than 50 business locations and more than 10, employees in China, announced a donation of 2 million Yuan to the Chinese Red Cross and sent hundreds of thousands of face masks to affected areas. When dealing with uncertainty, leaders need to look at communication from the perspective of your audience and have empathy for them rather than fear of doing the wrong thing.
