The Importance of Deep Interpersonal Communication and Collaboration

The Importance of Deep Interpersonal Communication and Collaboration

Dialogue vs Conversation

Conversation is good but dialogue is a meeting of minds, we need more of the latter. How often do we speak, write or type without giving time to really think about what we wish to communicate. The other side of communication is listening, how good are we at listening to what is & isn’t being communicated? Listening is a form of generosity, that is both rare and valuable and something we all can do. The next step in communication is, understanding what has been communicated. True understanding happens when what I hear you saying, what you mean and my interpretation of that are all the same.
