Effective communication? You be the judge.
A client called me an anchor recently. I chuckled … after I realized she didn’t mean to say she thought I was going to weigh down the conference like a ball and chain, rather she said – You’re our anchor “now when you get home what can you do with everything you just learned” presenter closing the conference.
I shared my chuckle with her and she in turn shared: I was thinking anchor like the last person on a relay race….. And I was having a conversation with someone here who has a room full of assorted furniture and she was arranging a viewing – I thought funeral and my colleague thought real estate.
What’s your view? ‘Tomatoe’ – ‘tomata’, ‘potatoe’ – ‘potata’ – let’s not call the whole thing off.
How do you ensure effective communication?
