Working effectively with others - communication - communication strategy.

RIVAS is a structure for developing a communication strategy.

It is an acronym for Result Intention Visualisation Actions Support.

R – result - what is your goal?

I – intention - understand why you want to do this? Keep asking yourself why you are doing this so that you can drill down to the root cause. This will help you to remain focussed.

V – visualisation - visualise success. Think about how it will look, feel, smell to succeed.

A – actions - what are the milestones you need along the journey?

S – support - who do you need to help you with this?

By breaking down your end objective in this way it will not only help you to focus, but ensure you keep on track and are more likely to achieve your goal.
