Let’s face it you cannot hide from communication.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this post. It is written very well and uses your own personal voice. The subject matter also was very relevant. I agree with your tips on good communication like speaking clear and confident while making eye contact. Sounds simple but is so important in today’s job market.

    • Thanks Evan, yes so many people are not even aware of the messages they send off when they communicate with others. It is very important that we all are aware though.

  2. This is such a relevant topic these days! Too few realize the true impact of the social media choices they make. Having our day-to-day communications sent out to a worldwide audience is a relatively new experience, and I feel we are lagging behind in adjusting. I’m reminded of the high school student in Cincinnati that tweeted a threat to the president. Just because we are increasingly communicating online does not mean we can forget the rules of civil discourse.
