(Mis)Communicating with Johnny Hillar Video provided by: TruthMedia Films
“Hello? HELLO!?” Feeling like you’re not being heard can be intensely frustrating, whether you’re dealing with tech support on the phone or your spouse in person. Playright George Bernard Shaw once said “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” This video illustrates an excellent example of how communication can fail!
Effective communication is a two-way street. If either participant is dedicated to muddling the message, neither will be successful. We could all use a little help to learn to communicate better with our spouse, our boss at work, or our kids. Sometimes it can help to talk with someone who is a patient listener. Contact a mentor to speak with someone today, and practice your communication skills!
