Communication can be so powerful, so lasting. When I talk to people about what they want to communicate, I try to help them understand that what they communicate will last. I can't remember what my friends were talking about how they said it or the name of a boy I danced with, but I can remember what it felt like to be there.
Maya Angelou said it best, "People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel."
So if you are transparent, you are clear, you are intentional, you will leave those with whom you communicate feeling trusted; and that will make all the difference.
