Talking the Walk takes a highly practical look at the realities of communicating in and about partnership.
Talking the Walk is a toolbook for partnership practitioners from all sectors, to enable them to understand the importance of good communication to their work, and to help them develop techniques to improve their communications – both inside, and beyond, the partnership.
This book has contributions in the form of case studies, think pieces and tools from more than fifteen practitioners and covers communications as a continuum from the very first partnering conversation to a PR blitz of a successful partnership. Topics include: Richer Conversations, Hearing Unheard Voices, Inter-cultural Communications, Use of Images, Communications Planning, Assessing Effectiveness and much more.
The book begins by examining the realities of communicating in partnership. It then provides a series of guides, tools and checklists to enable better communications. There are a selection of stories and case studies about communication, reflecting the experience of a range of practitioners in the field. Talking the Walk concludes with an analysis of future challenges that partnership practitioners will face, and how communication skills can be used to meet these challenges.
Talking the Walk was written by Ros Tennyson and Sue McManus, and supported by ANZ Bank, The Enviromental Partnerships for Sustainable Development and Nike.
