Internal communication can be a lonely and difficult job. Sometimes you’re working as a team of one and you’ve no one to turn to when you need support and advice.
I’ve been that lonely soldier myself – I know how hard it is.
Sometimes you need a bit more support and guidance to reach your potential and feel fulfilled in your work. Coaching can help.
I’ve spent the last two months coaching a Head of Internal Communication who took up a new role in a huge global company earlier this year. He wanted some direct support as he transitioned into the new role.
Some of the things he was struggling with when we met were:
Difficulty delegating tasks to others
Struggled to say no to stakeholders
No boundaries around his personal time
Drowning in tactical work due to lack of resources
We had our 7th coaching session yesterday and I am absolutely REELING from the conversation. This guy is on FIRE.
Here’s the wins he reported from the last two weeks alone:
Identified work that didn't need to be done and eliminated it entirely
Successfully delegated tactical work to others
Got approval to hire extra resources
Set boundaries with his boss
Secured the trust of his CEO
Stopped working weekends
Seriously. This guy is amazing. And I am so happy to play a part in his journey as he really steps into owning this strategic and important and influential role in his organisation.
What's the secret to his success? He's investing time in himself. He's taking time out from his busy day-to-day role to focus on his growth and his career with the help of a coach.
How you can get results like this too
If you want to make progress like this and really own your career and growth, then join my group coaching programme, The IC Accelerator.
I know that working in internal comms is hard. It’s really bloody hard. You’ve likely spent countless hours crafting content, managing communication channels, organising events, and creating communication plans. You’ve been dealing with unforeseen challenges, essentially putting out fires, day in and day out.
Despite your best efforts, you might still find yourself being perceived as nothing more than the “internal postman.”
It’s disheartening to be stuck in this tactical order-taking role, but it’s not your fault.
The workload in internal communication can be overwhelming, leaving you with little time to focus on your own career growth. The truth is, no one is going to give you that time; you need to take it for yourself. Simply making to-do lists or following productivity gurus won’t cut it. You’ve probably already tried to make some changes, but the tasks keep piling up, and your career progress remains stagnant.
It’s time for a new approach.
If you’re eager to up-skill as a communicator, connect with peers on a deeper level, and learn how to set and achieve your goals while being recognised for the value you bring to the table, something has to change. That something is YOU.
You need to invest time in yourself, your growth, and your career to truly accelerate.
