Current Issue: “The Biggest Roadblock to Organizational Success: Poor Internal Communication.”

The world has changed in significant and dramatic ways since The Latimer Group was founded twenty years ago. In this issue, we delve into some of the most profound changes we have observed in business communication across two decades of working with 20,000+ clients.

In the corporate world, one of the most disruptive changes has been the increase in noise that surrounds us every day: the constant and ready access to emails, texts, news feeds, and any information we could possibly want, always just one click away.

There’s an increasing and corresponding presumption that everyone is always available, whether for a meeting or to respond to an email, and an increasing expectation that every deadline is now. Under all these pressures, and with the possibilities for distraction nearly endless, we all struggle to manage and protect our time. More importantly, when everyone around us is struggling with the same issues, it is harder and harder to get people to focus on what we are saying, and simply be heard.

Fathom examines communication challenges both new and old. We invite you to read, subscribe, download, and share.
