( 4 videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDZFcDGpL4U
Someone responsed me like this:
Very well put, success of change has great deal to do with the how communication is done. The communication needs to address the reason to change and concerns of employees (Elving 2005). It is important that the communication is two-way. By allowing employees to ask questions, address concerns, and eases uncertainty. Affect communication can eliminate or reduce resistance. Empathy communicates understanding of employees concerns creating some comfort for employees. Communication or empathy should not be taken lightly or ignored as it could make or break implementation plan for change.
I wanted to also acknowledge your point how the communication is received. Understanding of language for the different age groups and cultures helps in assuring message is received as intended. The delivery of message goes a long way in receiving buy-in or rejection.
