Take me to your leader – Basic communication skills;

Basic communication is as simple as pointing and grunting at things. Hopefully, you are capable of a bit more than that already, but you can never be sure until you see it happen. With that in mind the next few days will be all about communicating in a positive manner with your fellow primates.

So what is communication? It is getting meaningful information across to your intended target. This can be through verbal, as in speaking, Non verbal, as in body language and written, which would include art and yes, in my case, stick figures. Verbal communication is just what it sounds like, speaking, also grunting would be included here. Non verbal covers everything from body language to mimes. Written is anything marked down in some manner such as cave drawings to blogging.

Verbal communication involves much more than just blathering away at the person you’re speaking with. It involves what’s referred to as active listening, or attentive listening. It all comes down to the same thing though, being able to listen more than talk. Non verbal is much more than waving your arms around to make a person stop or miming a phone call with your hands. Or for that matter, Miming in general we try to avoid that. Written is more than the words we use or the art we make it’s a way to get past many of the barriers placed by verbal limits and non verbal. Without spelling grammar and punctuation thought it simply becomes so much noise. Before Martin Luther King Jr “Had a Dream.” He had a pen and paper out. Before John F. Kennedy could “ask not what your country can do for you.” He had a pen and paper out. Effective written communication in this day and age is easily one of the most important factors in your daily lives even if you aren’t aware of it.

So spend the next few days here reading along as I put pen to paper and help you learn a bit about how you can improve your communication skills. I will of course add some humor in just to keep you from napping.
