Listen to understand, speak so others will listen, Communicate to Connect!
“We live on our own solitary islands of reality, absorbed in and fascinated by our own points of view. Frequently we reach out to one another seeking to understand or be understood. The bridge between our separate realities is communication . . . To communicate is to relate.” – Layne and Paul Cutright
