Have you ever left a conversation questioning whether your thoughts actually made it across to the other person? Have you ever walked away from a chat with a friend and could not remember much of what you talked about? Communicating is not always easy. “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” ~Stephen R.Covey This powerful quote speaks volumes to many of the problems we face in our world today. While social media and awesome technologies have made it easier to stay connected with our friends, family, social groups and business relationships; it has not done a thing to enhance true communications. It is still up to us to make changes and enhance our communication skills. Like our physical muscles, communication skills must be toned through regular use in order to improve. Listen in as we chat about what gets in the way of excellent communication skills and what we can do about that.
