Seasoned and spring chickens
The terrific transatlantic duo of Jason Anthoine and Benjamin Ellis join us to talk about What Employees Want and how internal messages from leaders or “the company” are often fraught with miscommunications. We talk about findings that stand out, how employees want to hear humanity in messages, and the power of storytelling. As with every episode, we share plenty of laughs at ourselves, one another, and a few surprisingly good accents at the end. Take the What Employees Want survey and share it with others at What Employees Want, or .........................................

It's not a belief system, it's spelling.
In this week's episode, we meet the formidable Internal Communications power couple, Chuck Gose and Kirstin Hancock. We hear about B-dog (their gorgeous rescue) leftover meals being the best thing in the world and we dive right into the most heated transatlantic spelling test yet.  Our miscommunication focus shifted a little for this show as we talk about how everything has an element of miscommunication and that the audience will ultimately tell us where we got it wrong.
