Dark Light

We often hear about the glitz of marketing strategies—the ads, the social media buzz, and the customer engagement tactics. However, in my experience coaching top executives, I’ve seen that the real game-changer isn’t how well you talk to the market but how effectively you communicate internally.

When Internal Communication Fails, So Does Everything Else

Take the case of a tech startup I worked with. They were fantastic at getting investor attention with flashy marketing. But inside, they were a mess. Teams didn’t talk to each other, and no one was quite sure about the direction they were headed. What happened? They missed deadlines, delivered below expectations, and morale plummeted. Their external image was great, but internally, they were struggling.

Another story comes from a retail chain that pushed hard on promotions to draw people into stores. Problem was, their own staff often learned about these promotions at the last minute or through customers. This confusion led to frustrated employees and customers alike, proving that great marketing means little if your team isn’t on board.

Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast

Neglecting internal communication can poison your company’s culture. Employees feel out of the loop and undervalued, and that’s when you start seeing resignations piling up. I saw this happen with a client post-merger. They were so focused on integrating systems and processes that they forgot to integrate people. The result? A loss of great talent and a drop in productivity.
