In this episode, our guest is Linley Watson, Founder and CEO Peak Performance International and author of “Avoiding the M&A Failure Club”. Peak Performance is a leading Australasian people and culture consultancy with team members in Australia and New Zealand and a wide network of associates across the globe. https://www.peakperformance.com.au/

Linley offers her view that good communication is a critical component in any change initiative, especially during a merger or acquisition. When bringing people from different teams or organisations together, much of the fear, uncertainty and the resulting resistance to change can be reduced through honest, balanced communication. 
Good communication is proactive and keeps things moving forward. It needs to be clear, candid, compelling, consistent and constant. 

Addressing the rational and emotional responses to a merger or acquisition is an investment in time, effort and money that has a significant payback. Here are Linley's top10 tips for communicating effectively throughout each phase of the M&A deal.
