Pre-read 2019: What is Digital Communication Doing to Civic Discourse?

Last fall, I visited each of Princeton’s six residential colleges to discuss the 2018 Pre-read, Professor Keith Whittington’s Speak Freely: Why Universities Must Defend Free Speech. Amidst robust conversations filled with thoughtful comments, one student’s query struck me as especially revealing. She said that she had been persuaded by Whittington’s case for the importance of vigorous truthseeking argument at colleges and universities, and so wondered in retrospect why her high school discouraged discussion of controversial topics.

At first I thought her school might be unusual, but I quickly noticed other students nodding in accord.

Humble presentation of a personal viewpoint for consideration and discussion has been replaced with all-or-nothing, bold and provocative statements made by people and brands. Dissecting the disconnect should be driven by a desire to improve and impact change. Take the combat out of comms Consumers aren’t conquests. NICD research brief1 0.

How to Choose the Right Communications Channel

This article has been updated from a post originally published on May 4, 2016 by CEB, now Gartner. Internal communications teams are tasked with conveying all kinds of messages, but they don’t always pick the most effective channel to do so. Too often, these teams fall into the trap of trying to get an important message out quickly rather than taking time to consider how it fits into their overall communication strategy. “If there has been a senior leadership change, for example, it can be all too easy to think, ‘I’ll just write a quick post on the intranet,’” says Iliyana Hadjistoyanova, senior research analyst at Gartner.

“Instead, comms should be asking, ‘How do I make sure employees are informed in the right way and feel equipped to deal with this leadership change?’” How to pick the most effective communication channels at work. What do comedy and effective communication in the workplace have in common?
