“The best way leaders can build effective organisational commitment, is through a bottom-up style that emphasizes the personal ownership of and commitment to specific initiatives and goals.”
“Story formats make for better pitches as there is more clarity. This PowerPoints will never achieve.”
Today, when we are in the midst of a communication revolution, one major problem that sadly continues to plague organisations is the lack of proper communication within. To be more specific, there is not enough of bottom-up communication taking place in organisations today. As a result, many existing and potential problems are never spotted till they achieve Himalayan proportions! Secondly, the implementation of solutions is done with a top-down (read trickle-down) approach with the end result that the entire problem-solving process proves to be highly inefficient and, many a times, ineffective one!
This MDP is designed to equip the participants with innovative communication techniques to tackle this challenge by providing a solution proven to deliver results. A solution that energises all the people involved - as it is full of fun and requires them to apply creativity in a way they have never done before! Welcome to the world of Participatory Photonovels!
This MDP makes participants learn the art and science of participatory photonovel creation- and apply this uniquetechnique to empower employees by enabling them to collectively use it for creative problem solving and thereby leading to a more energised organisation!
The key objectives of the MDP on ‘Energising the Organisation through Innovative Bottom-Up Communications’ are as follows:
· Develop a culture of empowerment and creative problem-solving which is directly linked to employee energy and thereby, organisational energy
· Enhance the leadership and team-working ability of the employees
