Parents arguing on the playground; hockey parents yelling at refs; a couple getting into it at the grocery story – What do you say when you feel compelled to intercede in a public display of anger or angst.
I talk with Al Coombs on CJBK – when he was stepping in for Mike Stubbs on CJBK’s First Thing – with a few pointers on when and how to speak up when you feel compelled to intercede in someone else’s drama.
Large companies have public relations departments to handle their communication crises, but regular folks don’t.
Often they are caught in a dilemma of thinking: ‘what do I say in this situation?’ or ‘how should I respond to that?’
Without the skills to write nuanced copy or craft the perfect verbal response, they can be caught short and end up looking bad.
Thursday mornings at 7:20 a.m., Jill Ellis-Worthington, Chief Communicator for Write.On Communication Services, chats with Mike Stubbs on CJBK’s morning drive show to discuss how to handle Personal PR problems.
Jill helps listeners with their communication issues by applying the principles of PR to every day issues.
