Think about the best communicator you know. Not someone famous (unless you know them) but rather someone you interact with.
Have you noticed their communication skills get better over time? (If they didn't, you might have a different view on them...) No doubt they work on it and keep developing those communication skills. There's always something to learn.
We are never finished developing our communication skills.
I know I've got a lot of learning to do when it comes to communication. How about you?
Think again about that great communicator you know. Could it be the some of the times you felt they were the best at communicating that it had very little to do with what they said, but more with what they didn't say? Could it be that the way they listen says more than they could say any other way?
Saying it best by listening is always welcome. I'm going to try to do that more often. How about you?
