    Communication Is Not Just Words...

    I teach it in my training classes--communication is not just the words being spoken.  Or typed.  Tone of voice, body language, speed of speech...all of these things give us vital clues as to what the message really is.  And because of that, I am a firm...

    Voice Level

    Though I almost hear the voice and the tone of the one I txt or message with, it isn't there.  It's something extremely important missing.A written sentence isn't the same as a spoken one.  The voice itself contains so much information and is always unique and a...

    Clarity Of Meaning

    I cannot tell you or emphasize enough how important tones are, ESPECIALLY in the absence of being able to read someone's facial expressions. But it goes deeper than that, tones and voices are essential no matter what form in which you are communicating whether it be the written...
