Communication is critical to our existence. Without it, we are isolated entities functioning without the ability to connect to anyone or anything around us. Without communication we lose relationships, we can't create community, and any ability to cooperate in building out a life and a larger culture simply does not exist. Yet, despite the incredible importance of communication, we don't focus on doing it well. Much of our communication is rather sloppy, slip-shod and less than thoughtful. With others often communicating in a similar fashion, our interactions deteriorate to the point that relationships are simply not possible, or they remain distant, or they become damaged beyond restoration. This brief video outlines several basic yet powerful communication skills that will begin the process of enhancing your communication.
