Becoming Better Communicators.


In a galaxy not far away, and in a time not so long ago, my generation: we thongs on our feet; we listened to records and cassettes; we used typewriters to create reports. Today, people wear thongs as underwear, listen to digitally recorded music, and create reports on word-processing software.

It is not uncommon for one generation to change the meaning of words as a way to separate themselves from the previous generation. And, let’s face it technology is changing at an incredible pace.

So what is the result? We create ample opportunities for miscommunication. This is why it is so important that we take the time to see things from the other’s perspective. We need to ask ourselves do the words I am using have the same meaning to them as they do to me? If there is a potential for misunderstanding, it is our responsibility to clarify what we mean by the words we choose. By being conscious of what we are saying, and how it is being interpreted, we become better communicators.
