Charles Jones's insight:

I couldn't agree more.  Especially with globalization and technology.  Globalization has created language and cultural barriers.  Also, technology presents its own challenges.  Although it offers a variety of communicative sources, it shouldn't replace face- to- face interaction.

How often do you challenge yourself to improve what you offer to your members or customers?

 

Do you ask 'why us' frequently and then ask others the same question to see if you see reality as others do?

The most persuasive words in English: The psychology of language

The most persuasive words in English: The psychology of language | Victoria ELD | Scoop.it
What are the most persuasive words in english? Recent research points to "Free", "Because", "You", "Instantly" and "New".
Charles Jones's insight:

This is a good read.  As an ESL instructor, I can see how sentence structures can be difficult for learners.  Perfect grammar is not always the answer in or out of the classroom.

Words Matter, Context Matters More

Words Matter, Context Matters More | Victoria ELD | Scoop.it

We have all heard the nursery rhyme “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”  Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it just ain’t so.  Words can hurt, and they can hurt deeply.  Our words can turn an enemy into a friend and a friend into an enemy.  Our words can lift someone up or tear someone down.  In fact, one of the most powerful things we have as a leader is our words.

Charles Jones's insight:

This is true.  Sometimes, it's not what you say, but how you say it.

Great advice!

The BioSync Team's curator insight, March 28, 2013 2:11 PM

"Words chanted, spoken and written are powerful incantations. They have the ability to heal as well as inflame, to unite as well as separate, to bring love as well as engender hatred."
- Mark Lamm

David Rathbun goes on to say "As powerful as words are, we must not forget that much of their power comes not from the words themselves but from the context in which the words are spoken. The gestures and tone we use with our words, the time and place we choose to speak our words, the way we put the words together, they all have an impact on how our words are received. So, choose your words with care, and choose the context in which your share them with even more care."
