Turn Up the Heat

I can still feel the heat and hear the roar of that erupting volcano in the Galapagos Islands.

Four years ago today, I saw an active volcano on Fernandina Island from the deck of a catamaran. Our captain travelled hours to bring us to this unscheduled stop on our tour. He steered near the violent spectacle to give us a closer look.

You could say that is exactly what the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol is doing. They are bringing us closer to the insurrection burned in our collective memory and shedding light on what their exhaustive investigation has unearthed.

This professional communicator/news junkie applauds their approach. A combination of concise language, brief video clips, targeted testimony and social media content – supported by extensive factfinding – is helping all of us understand the impact and origins of one of the “darkest days of our democracy.”

How do you manage complicated topics within your organization? I invite you to contact me about ways to turn up the heat in your own communications.
