Strategic Communications and Change Consulting
Lean Out Communications helps you plan, implement and sustain successful change initiatives, and we provide practical strategic communications solutions and promotional plans to meet your growth objectives.
We’ll talk to your key stakeholders to assess your organization’s readiness to change, evolve and grow sustainably, then we’ll develop tailored solutions to get you where you need to be:
- Communication frameworks to ensure you’re talking to the right people at the right time
- Communication strategies, messaging platforms and plans to ensure all of your internal and external stakeholders are aligned and ready to evolve
- Capability building to get your managers or others ready to accept, implement and effect change
- Process plans so you can communicate, build brands and engage key stakeholders reliably and consistently
- Traditional communications support, including PR, copy writing, internal and external communications, marketing communications and more, all with an emphasis on practicality.
Our goal is to provide you with the communications strategies, tactical plans and capabilities you need to drive sustainable business improvements…and to give you a firm foundation so you can grow and scale.
Communication Project Management
Our team has significant experience leading change communication efforts relating to M&A, operational footprint transformations, corporate and product rebranding, pricing initiatives, lean implementations, product launches, corporate restructuring, and more.
We apply our proven practical approach to ensure that all of your critical stakeholders – customers, employees, investors, suppliers, communities, etc. – are fully engaged in change initiatives and on board with your objectives.
We’ll work side-by-side with your project implementation team to make sure they’re engaging the right people at the right time to make a change successful. We’ll help them build communication plans, convene meetings, interface with functional experts … anything we need to do to make sure your change initiative makes the grade.
If you don’t have a team in place to drive a change, no worries, we can do that too. If you have a robust team in place ready to do the job, we’ll support them with messaging, training and counsel as needed.
