Strategic Communications

Strive strategies believes in the fundamentals of communications

Communications as an activity is a targetable tactic used to reach strategic audiences, and certain immutable rules apply.

#1: In the public square, “Truth” is what the people believe it to be, and it is practically impossible to change what people think to be true.

#2: In the world of public communication, cognitive dissonance reigns – People like flattery, but can smell a fake; they want value, but avoid cost.

The way you present your case to the public must account for these first principles of communicating in a politicized context and how people hear your argument matters as much as the argument itself.


#3: A winning message strategy will have your targeted audience posing the question you want asked with the resulting answer being your position is the affirmative, and your opponent’s is the negative.

#4: No matter the arena – public or private – shared concern plus unique quality equals emotional connection.

Whether communicating on Issue, Idea, or Value, our professional approach to message development and delivery is powered by top-level assessment of the sociological ecosystem as it affects the political, policy, and business climate.

Strive excels at finding the unique qualities of our clients and connecting them to issues voters care about in a direct and personal way so their message can prevail.
