The Importance of Authenticity in Communications with Jill Christensen (Podcast)

In this very special episode of The Comms Shift, we’re introducing not just one, but two new voices to the podcast!

Firstly, this marks the first episode hosted by me, Aleks, Product Marketing Manager at Smarp. For a long time now, our CMO Bruno has been hosting The Comms Shift. The two of us have so many conversations around Employee Communications (with each other as well as the amazing comms professionals we work with), that a transition to co-hosting the show just made sense.

Secondly, and more importantly, I’m more than excited to introduce Jill Christensen to our Comms Shift listeners!

A former Fortune 500 business executive with a Six Sigma Green Belt, Jill Christensen understands how organizations operate, and what they need to do differently to attract, retain, and engage employees. Her best-selling book, If Not You, Who?, outlines, among other things, the clear benefits linked to an open, honest and authentic communications culture.

Thanks to her status as a Top 101 Employee Engagement Influencer, Jill has worked in 20 industries, partnering with the best and brightest leaders around the world to improve productivity, retention, and revenue growth through re-engaging employees with effective, authentic communications.

In this episode, me and Jill chat about:

  • Her decision to move from corporate executive to consultant and speaker.
  • The benefits of communicating authentically… and the cost of not doing so.
  • Examples of organizations and executives doing comms the right way.
  • What to do to fix comms in an organization struggling with transparency in their comms.
  • How comms pros can directly show their impact on bottom-line results.
  • What we can ALL do to become a bit more authentic when communicating.

I know I had a lot of fun chatting with her, and I hope you’ll have just as much fun listening. There is a little something for everyone in this episode, so settle into your commute and have a listen!
