When we’re communicating for action or change, the rules are different from just telling people stuff.

Change is hard. We’re asking people to invest effort and negotiate risk. We know they’re liable to resist any form of pressure.

You’ll immediately notice that change communication is likely to be more fun and interesting than inform communication!

Here is a 2 page practice sheet “Communication for Change”.

Hope you find it useful.
