How Can We Improve Our Communication?
Inspired by my Interpersonal Communications class, I felt like it would be a nice thing, to get some of the information that is circling around about Communication organized, and try to help people use it in the right way.

This COMM page will involve: interpersonal, intrapersonal, group, family, relationship, etc.

It is never easy finding yourself in a situation where you need to interrupt the conversation. Sometimes, your friends are talking among themselves and there is something you can't wait to tell them. Sometimes, others are dominating the conversation and you can't get a word in.


Whatever it is, sometimes you just have to. It may seem a little unusual, but the fact is there's such a thing as interrupting a conversation politely. . .

"You can observe the limbic brain in action throughout the global workplace:

An employee spots a friend and immediately her eyebrows raise and her eyes widen in recognition, a team-member reacts to distressful news by caving in his upper body and lowering his head, the winner of a conference door prize touches the base of her neck in surprise and delight, an executive’s lips compress when pressured to answer an unwelcome question. All of these nonverbal responses can be seen whether you are in Sao Paulo, Singapore or San Francisco."

"You know that feeling, when you can’t wait to get home to tell your significant other about the crazy thing that just happened at work? The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling stories. (Usually more than once.) The above excerpt essentially describes every single day of my life. Sharing life experiences with people who mean something to me is what makes these experiences that much more exciting.


Read below, as Karen Dietz sums up my thoughts way better than I ever could. Thanks Karen and Gregg!

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.

One of the things that differentiates the leaders people gravitate to, connect with, and follow is their ability to communicate.


That doesn't just mean speeches. Informal events can take as much skill as a speech in front of thousands. . .

Great Challenge - Improving Medical Communication

Great Challenge - Improving Medical Communication | How Can We Improve Our Communication? | Scoop.it

Doctors aren't usually trained in interpersonal communications -- and patients are often intimidated when talking to doctors. What can both sides do to improve matters? Share your thoughts and experiences here, and we'll pass along your questions to our team of experts.


Via Giovanna Marsico
Sarah Hanson's insight:

Ever had a doctor with bad bedside manners? I know I've had plenty. I think a class in interpersonal communications would benifite doctors. Make patients feel more comfortable talking to them about things that call be considered "private."
