From the Back Cover:

Praise for Beyond the Babble

"Beyond the Babble is a significant contribution to the practice of employee communications ?very pragmatic and useful in crafting a communication program that really works."?
Harlan Teller, chief knowledge officer, Financial Dynamics

"This book explains in practical terms how to leverage and rally an entire organization, from the board room to the shop floor, around a common set of goals. Beyond the Babble is an important book for leaders looking to drive real change."
J. Steven Keate, consultant and former president, International Truck Group

"Bob Matha and Macy Boehm have created a very readable book—without the puffery and exaggerations—that gives managers a logical and original framework for organizing their company's strategic communications and actions. Their On Strategy approach also smartly integrates the power of measurement into several steps in the model."
Clarke L. Caywood, professor, integrated marketing communications, Northwestern University

"Matha and Boehm show CEOs, managers, and communications professionals how to engage employees through effective internal communications to produce real business results.Their approach benefits employers, employees, and yes, even customers."
Gary Ross, general manager, corporate communications, CDW Corporation

"Today's leaders increasingly find themselves working at a pace that is some combination of a sprint and a marathon just to get things done.?Organizations of all kinds, not-for-profits and Fortune 500 companies alike, have experienced an incredible increase in both the velocity and number of issues that must be managed, and that trend is only going to accelerate in the future. Effective leaders find ways to help their organizations be successful in this challenging environment and Beyond the Babble is clearly one of those ways."
Edward A. West, former senior vice president, corporate communications, WellPoint

"A must read for business leaders and their communication and HR advisers. The approach in Beyond the Babble makes strategy tangible and actionable for employees up and down the organization—and it gets results."
Greg Elliott, senior vice president, human resources, Navistar International

From the Inside Flap:

Beyond the Babble

The CEO takes the podium and begins to speak. It's a polishedpresentation and he looks impressive. As he talks, people nod theirheads in apparent agreement, but after the applause dies down thepainful truth is revealed. His message didn't get across. It wasall just so much babble. What went wrong?

In Beyond the Babble, Bob Matha and Macy Boehm offer a strategicplan for addressing one of the most difficult challenges anybusiness leader can face: engaging employees to take action.Written for all those who lead groups--including supervisors, managers, HR and communications professionals, executives, andCEOs--this practical resource describes how to put in placeproven communication principles that do just that. Matha andBoehm's On Strategy communication plan focuses on one criticalemployee question: What do you want me to do? And it gives leadersthe tools they need to mobilize a team of ten or an organization ofthousands.

Designed to get business results by improving communications, Matha and Boehm's three-step On Strategy approach shows how to

Clarify direction to the organization and make it relevant toemployees

Prepare leadership--from top to bottom--to deliverdirection and engage employees

Communicate to the larger organization about strategy through anongoing "conversation" with and among employees

Filled with real-life examples from such well-knownorganizations as Ford Motor Company, BP, General Motors, HomeDepot, NASA, and many others, Beyond the Babble explores thecritical role communication plays in driving performance, how toleverage it, and how best to measure results.
