Internal Comms Leader, Chuck Gose, Will Uncover and Leverage Internal Biases at CommCon
This week I put my internal PR hat on and spoke with Chuck Gose, who is going to be keynoting at PRSA Oregon’s CommCon event on May 3rd. He is an internal communications thought leader who has his hands in many projects. Beyond keynoting at industry events around the globe, Chuck’s self-professed “day job” is Strategic Advisor at SocialChorus, an employee communications platform. He is also the founder of ICology (an internal communications podcast), co-creator of The Very Hungry Communicator (a book about the transformation of a hungry communicator), and he also hosts another couple of podcasts, such as the Chuck Chats series with bananatag.
At CommCon, Chuck plans on delivering a talk called “The Mind Matters,” which will delve into cognitive bias in communication. Chuck says that cognitive biases affect how we communicate, what we communicate and the channels we use. Out of the hundreds of biases, Chuck pulled about twelve that affect employee communications. He’ll get into the twelve biases at CommCon to help communicators to work towards eliminating their biases, or at least being aware of them, and then possibly even leveraging them within their effort to communicate better. This sure sounds fascinating to a former Psychology Major!
Then the conversation took us into the differences and similarities between internal and external communications, how podcasting can be an excellent internal comms tool and a career path which led him to specialize in internal comms.
