BuzzWord Communication Consulting
The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. -G B Shaw
Our brains and our bodies are constantly being flooded with verbal and nonverbal communication --it is buzzing all around us 24/7/365. Because of this, we often settle into a "communication comfort zone," where we begin to limit what we share and receive. Ultimately, this contributes to a breakdown in communicating both in business and our personal lives. Learning to communicate effectively takes practice and devotion to a greater sense of self-awareness around how we interact with others.
Did you know that:
- The average worker spends 50 percent of his or her time communicating?
- Business success is 85 percent dependent on effective communication and interpersonal skills?
- 45 percent of time spent communicating is listening?
- One-fourth of all workplace mistakes are the result of poor communication?
- Writing represents 9 percent of communication time and an astonishing 75 percent of communication is nonverbal?
