Communication is one of the most important parts of a manager’s job. It's also the most time consuming. You need to deliver information clearly and in ways that make sense to people in order for it to be effective. Not an easy task.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of things working against you. Effective communication is tough in any situation, but the immediacy of live events - the stress, the crunched timeline - can compound issues that arise. The best way to combat such challenges is to first recognize what causes them. Once you do, you’ll be well on your way to designing an effective communication plan for any event.
