*** 20/20 Vision: Dreaming a communications future:

I am a believer in vision communications. It’s what we as communicators can do to help leadership articulate and share a vision—an elegant and vivid picture of where an organization needs to be or needs to become at some future time, such as ten years from now. Through effectively communicating that idea, we can help key stakeholders (like employees, investors, the public) be aware, then understand, then believe, and ultimately embrace the vision as their own so that they behave on their own so as to achieve the vision.

Mark Schumman, ABC, is the new chair of IABC, having taken the gavel from Barb Gibson, ABC, at the IABC World Conference in San Francisco last week. Mark has begun his own ongoing commentary to members, communicators, and the business world at large, and has begun articulating that vision. He is creating an image that is elegant and vivid. I already subscribe to this vision, so I don’t need a lot of convincing. But I encourage you to read the blog, and think about this future—where we need to be as a profession and an association that both supports business communicators as well as business communication—by the year 2020.

As many of you know, effective 30 June, I am beginning my tenure as chair of IABC’s Accreditation Council. When you listen to Mark share his vision, you come to know that he values accreditation as a fundamental purpose of IABC in supporting professionals and the profession. Mark and I have discussed this at length, and we share the vision of where we want to be, as well as a path to help us get there.

In the months ahead I’m sure you’ll hear me talking about accreditation and the council’s efforts to advance the process by which communicators can measure themselves by the global standard. We have some very positive research that tells us IABC members value the global standard that the “Accredited Business Communicator” designation has come to stand for, and many of them would like to earn that designation. But they feel the process is cumbersome. We hear you.

I encourage you to read Mark’s comments, and to follow them throughout his year as chair.

Ned: I don't get it. What's so funny?

Mike: Let’s test your funny bone: see if this is funny:

*** Introducing Effective Media Training … Online

It's like a teleseminar, only better. The online version of At Ease With the Media is now available at its own website (www.AtEaseWithTheMedia.com).

This self-study program provides spokespeople with tools and insights to manage exchanges with reporters to win-win outcomes, while applying risk management strategies to protect their reputation and their organization's.

The program consists of 10 audio-visual modules that vary in length from four to 13 minutes and cover a range of topics. Each module is accompanied by a five-question quiz. Spokespeople view the modules and complete the quizzes. Those who earn a combined score of 45/50 receive a Certificate of Completion for the program.

“The quizzes serve two purposes,” says Eric Bergman, ABC, APR, who designed the program and is also author of the train-the-trainer guide Media Training With Excellence: A Balanced Approach (http://iabcstore.com/prmediarelations/mediatraining.htm). “First, they force participants to listen to the information contained in the modules. Second, they help internalize the concepts taught. Testing has shown the program to be extremely effective at achieving both ends.”

The modules cover topic areas that include: Managing Polarization; Working With Reporters; Negotiating the Interview; Print vs Broadcast; and Managing Risk. “Participants have commented that the 'Managing Risk' module alone is worth the cost of the program,” Bergman says.

The program is extremely flexible and adaptable. Organizations can offer all modules to their spokespeople, or only offer specific modules. The online version can be used as stand-alone training, or offered in conjunction with “live” training — either in person or via teleconference.

“The original idea was to bring cost-effective media training to a wide geographic audience,” says Bergman. “And there is no better program available for doing that. But beyond that original aim, At Ease With the Media sets a new standard for media training that helps an organization's spokespeople create strategic outcomes from their exchanges with journalists.”
