Want Better Communications in Your Relations?
I've got what you need!

The best approach to communication will turn traditional "technique" and "skill" strategies on their heads! Truth is, increasing your ability to communicate within all contexts — both business and personal — is NOT so much about increasing technical knowledge, but about changing YOU from your core. Why so? Here's an excerpt from my book that explains:

* * * * * * *

Self as Language. Every human act is a language act, an act that conveys motive, emotion, meaning, and purpose. What it means to be human is to communicate in every waking moment—you literally cannot NOT communicate. Life is manifest in daily interactive dialogue. As to language and Life, Jergen Habermas remarked: "Reality happens in language. . . . Language is not merely an object in our hands, it is the reservoir of tradition and the medium in and through which we exist."

* * * * *
Human beings do not just use language, . . . we are language!
Speaking, expressing, hearing, and understanding is inherently Who We Are.
Thus, enriching Who We Are from our core is a superior approach to improving
communication, . . . compared to learning "techniques" and "skills."
as if language were merely a manipulative tool in our hands.
* * * * *

The project of "changing YOU" from your core is a continual journey that will, in turn, take care of all adjoining problems—to include all communication problems. This means, as we grow in strength of character, we naturally become better communicators.

The issues and obstacles of effective interpersonal communication are seldom only about word selection, . . . "saying it just right." Instead, clear communication is mostly about "being right" in your approach to others. Once YOU are right . . . the right words will freely flow. (Changing Your Stripes, 2nd Ed., page 74)

You Need to Put Your Peepers
On the Words in my Blook

You'll be so much Smarter and Happier if you do!

"The Greatest Prize
for Life's labors isn't
in material possessions
or impressive accomplishments,
but in the progress of personal character.
You labor for your own becoming, this is your richest reward.
Who You Become is your greatest possession,
make it your Masterpiece!"

(Changing Your Stripes, 2nd Ed., page 274)

The book, "Changing Your Stripes" presents principles for getting out of
the ditch in which you've been dumped (the difficulties of which you are a victim),
and for escaping the ditch in which you've jumped (the difficulties for which you volunteer).

"Mastering a challenging situation
is ultimately a matter of
mastering yourself!"

- Matt Moody.
