Remarkable quotes:

Is your verbal message matching what you are actually doing?

 In a world that is ever-changing, the one thing that never changes is communication.

There is a way to communicate that can help you win, and there is a way to communicate that will make you lose. 

While people like authenticity, they want to know that there is a thought pattern behind that authenticity. 

 Safety does not always mean comfortable. 

Are you overcomplicating communication, because that's what you have been told to do?
