Let’s Keep Talking

As communicators, we can easily get caught up in the latest technological trend, the allure of high-level strategy, the myriad of tactics available, but let’s not forget what is fundamental to human communication…the conversation!

Like Stephen Hawking says, “all we need to do is make sure we keep talking”.

  1. Inspiring piece!

    Reminds me of a story I was told about Bill Clinton attending a party/fundraiser at someone’s home several years ago.

    When Clinton arrived, everyone rushed over and flocked around him. The host stood in the corner and smiled.

    “What they don’t understand,” said the host, “is that they don’t have to hurry to meet him. He’s a stayer. He won’t leave until he’s talked with every person here.”

    To keep talking in the way Hawking suggests, we have to spend time with people — really talking AND really listening. That’s when creative collaboration occurs!
