Getting anyone to understand what we mean is a complex and difficult problem. Even articulating what that problem is requires that we solve it to a greater or lesser degree:
The most immutable barrier in nature is between one man’s (sic) thoughts and another’sWilliam James
We have learned some remarkable things, but chiefly we live and communicate not through our understanding of these processes, but in spite of our ignorance of themJohn R. Pierce, SciAm Communications 1972
Communication is something so simple and difficult that we can never put it into simple wordsT. S. Mathews
We communicate all the time, mostly without thinking about what we’re doing. The problem isn’t just that we communicate casually, but that in doing so we believe that we have accomplished what we set out to do. Communicating is the most difficult of tasks, and the consequences of failure range from the trivial—showing up at the wrong place for dinner—to the more catastrophic—global war.
Like several of our recent offerings—notably Mark Mullaly’s ‘Structure in Three Acts’—this webinar explores a deep problem that we all share, but which we mostly ignore. How do we communicate in a way that will increase the chance we’re actually connecting?
Join Peter as he attempts to communicate both the difficulties of communicating and how we might increase the likelihood that communication takes place. Sound confusing? You have no idea…
