Principles of the Communication Strategy Dina Wolfman Baker Vice President of Communications
Integration • The first key to effective communication is an integrated strategy • Each level flows from and supports the levels above • All elements work effectively with and in support of each other 5
Structure • The structure leads you through the development of your strategy and helps ensure integration 6
Level 1: Background / Context • Organization-level mission and goals • Positive position and challenges • Aspirations • Market context • Situational analysis 7
Level 2: Audiences / Stakeholders • Identify and segment audiences based on the organizational context provided in Level 1 • Example: 8
Level 3: Key Messages • This is the centerpiece of the strategy • All communications will draw from the key messages 9
Level 3: Key Messages • Overarching message • Proof point • Supporting message • Proof points • Supporting message • Proof points • Proof point… 10
Levels 4-6: Objectives, Strategies & Tactics • Objectives = what we want to accomplish • Strategies = how we want to accomplish it • Tactics = with what we will move forward 12
Levels 4-6: Objectives, Strategies & Tactics • We can explicitly trace: • every objective as a goal to reach at least one identified audience • every strategy as a means to achieve at least one objective for at least one audience (preferably multiple) • every tactic as a tool to achieve at least one strategy, in support of at least one objective, for at least one audience (preferably multiple) It can be helpful to develop a visual device that clearly shows these relationships 13
Level 4: Objectives • Examples: • Communicate that we are a nonprofit public health institute, what that means, and the benefit it brings • Highlight the strength and value of our management role and capabilities • Build cohesion across the organization 14
Level 5: Strategies • Examples: • Develop visual representations that aid in communicating our messages to all stakeholders • Develop effective internal communications, share standards and messages, build cohesion through an inclusive process, engage the workforce as organizational advocates 15
Level 6: Tactics • Consider indicating audience(s) served 16
Definition • What is an elevator speech? 18
Consistency + Flexibility • Standard language • Modular • Use or draw from messaging architecture 19
Messaging Architecture • As the architect, you lay out the verbal “space” but others must be able to use it as needed 20
Disseminate the Message • Training • Role-playing • Modeling 22

FYI e-mails To: Board members Please find below several articles from today’s Columbus Dispatch. Uninsured Ohioans have lots of company Survey finds most lacked health coverage for 6 months-plus Wednesday, April 8, 2009 3:08 AM By Jack Torry THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH WASHINGTON -- A new study by an organization that champions health-care coverage for all Americans found that nearly 30 percent of Ohio residents younger than 65 were without insurance for at least part of the past two years. Released yesterday by FamiliesUSA of Washington, the report also showed that nearly 71 percent of the 2.8 million uninsured Ohio residents went more than six months without any health insurance. The survey of Ohio and other states likely will intensify pressure on Congress to approve a major overhaul of the U.S. health-care system to extend insurance to the nearly 50 million Americans without coverage.The new report does not necessarily contradict the Ohio Family Health Survey released last month. That survey of 51,000 households in Ohio showed that 17 percent of Ohio adults between ages 18 and 64 were uninsured. For example, FamiliesUSA examined the uninsured in Ohio for a two-year period while the Ohio Family Health Survey dealt with just one year. Authors of the Ohio health survey also asked respondents whether they had been without health insurance during the previous month."It's not an apples-to-apples comparison," said Paul Quinn, director of communication for the Health Policy Institute of Ohio, which conducted the Ohio Family Health Survey. "There's no real way to compare our numbers." But Quinn said that the two surveys make it clear that health coverage in Ohio is "getting worse, and there's a lot of reasons for that. The economy is bad, unemployment is up, and fewer employers are offering health care."The vast majority of Americans obtain their health insurance in one of three ways. Most working adults are insured through their employer. People older than 65 receive coverage from Medicare, while Medicaid covers children and adults in low-income families. But there is a pool of Americans who either work for small companies that do not provide insurance or who have lost their jobs from companies that did insure their workers. As a result, people often are moving in and out of the category of uninsured.According to the FamiliesUSA survey, which relied on statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, 30 percent of those without coverage in Ohio were uninsured for less than six months, suggesting that they had found jobs from companies that cover their workers. The survey also showed that African-Americans were far more likely to be without insurance than whites. Thirty-nine percent of African-Americans lacked health coverage at some point in the past two years, compared with 26 percent of white Ohioans. firstname.lastname@example.org
