An engine that mobilizes and empowers, gives people what they need, speeds up your business and helps you make better decisions A marketing, broadcast or one-way communications channel A community is NOT… A community is… “Striking the sweet spot between the interests and needs of the community and the interests and needs of the organization is critical to the long term success of business communities.” - Rachel Happe, The Community Roundtable
No need to be too formal! This is the opportunity for you to quickly engage with your teams and get a snapshot of what is happening on the front-line Keep most posts shorter than traditional communications - the idea is to engage and start discussions Ask questions! Don't be afraid to show your personality. Tips for engaging with colleagues
Get your team involved #Follow-up-Friday No Email Day Team YamJam #YamWin Yammer Lunch & Learn
Pre-event Schedule a 1-2 hour block (think global) Leaders + a few experienced moderators Use a group that you’ll reuse (org- focus, not event-focus) Create an event in your team group, pre-announce topics Prepare “seed” questions and/or polls Prepare an FAQ for fast answers to expected questions During event Set expectations about leader responses (they can’t respond to everyone) Be prepared for disruptions, guide them back on topic (#offtopic…) Leaders: Intro your topic, using the agreed #tag Be informal, be human Be inviting – ask questions Moderators #tag conversations with relevant topics for easy review Post polls for feedback
And remember … Lead by example and pull employees into your network with engaging communications Engage with your members – the simplest interactions can make a big difference It’s a journey to value – help everyone understand what that value is, why they should embark on the journey and how they will get there
