As part of our Blending Leadership course, we are encouraging participants to host video conversations to share practices and habits that they use successfully (or at least interestingly). In a conversation I facilitated, there were 5 people connecting together from Connecticut, Vancouver, Hawaii, Japan, and Colorado to talk about creating whiteboard animation videos for online courses.
In the spirit of sharing, here is something (context removed) I shared with someone that others might gain something from if applied to their own context.
An engagement issue like this cannot be solved at the level of the messengers or the messaging, but instead has to be solved at the level of the product/service itself. For example, when [some other thing will go] live, I am sure that the messengers and messaging will all work just fine...because the product has established and validated its value.
