pic-1In today’s contentious world, where both sides of every coin feel compelled to shout their opinions from the social media rooftops, communicators find themselves faced with a new range of considerations. Jack Greiner, partner at Graydon law firm and media law professor at the University of Cincinnati, shared his expertise during our February program about civility in communication.

As Jack pointed out, companies have to deal more and more with political speech, even at an executive level.┬áHe shared several examples of PR nightmares that can occur when employees’ ideas of freedom of speech go viral. One of the biggest pieces of advice he offered was to make sure assumptions and generalizations don’t enter communications. He also stressed the importance of being clear with employees about corporate policies.
