Have you ever noticed the books you read about successful businesses, organizations, and partnerships all include a chapter or two on communication? We all know how important communication is. Why is it then, that often times mis-communication occurs overtly or you walk away from a conversation or an interaction with a knot in the pit of your stomach and you just can’t quite figure out what went wrong, you just know something wasn’t right? As we journey through this book study my hope is that we will embrace the ideas and concepts presented to help us have successful communication with our peers, our family members, and our students. Please remember two foundational pieces through our study. The first is everyone is one of six basic personality types, and the second is HOW we say something is more important than WHAT we say.
Please read chapter one before we meet on Thursday. While you are reading consider the following questions and respond to our blog. Thank you. Again I look forward to our journey together!
1. What three personality types best describe yourself?
2. What is one takeaway from Chapter one and what impact will it make on you?
