Nine years old and flying

It’s our BIRTHDAY!

Simply Communicate is NINE YEARS OLD TODAY!!

What has filled your last nine years? Joys and sorrows, struggles and (hopefully) success – and some stories to write home about?

Workshops, Toolbox talks, discourses and discussions have been some of the ways I have been privileged to interact with leaders, managers and team members over the last nine years.

Strategic planning, drilling down to key issues and the ‘Ah ha’ moments shared as we have engaged around things that really matter, have been highlights.

Disciplinary hearings, performance reviews and retrenchment exercises have been the necessary, though often less pleasant, forms of interaction.

Compliance issues and HR administration are the less exciting, but just as important, aspects of Simply Communicate’s work.

We have shared the shock of the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent violence. We have struggled together on how to navigate these dark waters and, sadly, some have not made it. We have lost loved ones, members of the community, livelihoods and whole businesses.

How do we reignite employee enthusiasm, re-engage with customers and navigate through the challenges? What is next for you? What critical end result are you aiming for?

Allow Simply Communicate to help you discover the answers and help your team fly.
