Straight Talk, Issue #17 -- Now, listen!
December 04, 2007
Hi,, communication is also about listening!

In this Issue of Straight-Talk! newsletter ~

1. Communication is also about listening

2. Food for thought - Quotation

3. Regular: What we stand for - Our vision


1. Listening is a skill you can't do without

Good communication is more than just opening your mouth, it is also about opening your ears - afterall, you wouldn't open your mouth if no one was willing to listen to you.

We often forget the fact that to be heard we need to hear others. As much as speaking well is important, I believe that people who listen well have a much better advantage in life - they get farther than those who just talk well. Think about it... Improve your listening skills ============================================

3. Quote for thought

“To listen well, is as powerful a means of influence as to talk well, and is as essential to all true conversation.”

~Chinese Proverb

"The one who understands does not speak; the one who speaks does not understand.”

~ Chinese Proverb

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

~Authour Unknown ===========================================

Our Vision

Here in, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the necessity of enhanced and effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
