Blog Rebroadcast: All Communication is Not Equal.

Do you have your back turned on new methods of communication?

My kids don’t listen to voicemails. If I leave them a voicemail, they say, ‘Why didn’t you just text?’

When my generation came of age, answering machines were like a miracle. But that was my generation’s thing. The next generation wants to communicate with their own thing. Right now, that looks like texting.

Some people prefer email. Some are most reachable - astoundingly - via facebook. Some old schoolers still like voice communication.

Very few people realize that this country still has a postal service, and when you can get a letter through to someone, that can often be the most effective form of communication.

My point is: If trust and communication are the two most important parts of any relationship - how are you doing on the latter?

With your loved ones? With your clients?

If you’re using *your* preferred method of communication to reach everyone in your life, you’re likely not getting through to *every* one.
