“What we have here is a failure to communicate”. A famous quote from the movie: Cool Hand Luke. In my professional and personal life, communication problems are the number #1 problem reported. You would think with all the technology we have in the 21st Century, we should have communication mastered. And yet, there is still a huge disconnect-and I am not just talking about a dropped cell phone call. Think about your current and former work situations, and ask yourself; was there a communication problem? Think about personal and professional relationships that you have, past and present. Have you experienced communication problems?
I am going to go out on a limb here, I disagree with the quote; “What we have here is a failure to communicate”. What we have is a failure to listen and understand each other.
There is a lyric in the song: “Blowing in the wind” that sings; “How many ears must a man have before he can hear people cry?”
