Regarding effective communication, an article from says that, “communication is the glue that helps you deepen your connections to others and improve teamwork, decision making, and problem solving. It enables you to communicate even negative or difficult messages without creating conflict or destroying trust.”

Tip Of The Day: To get the ‘whole story’ - favor your right ear. 

How does that really work? Turns out- it’s about “higher frequencies.”

Communication isn’t just about the words spoken, it’s also about the nonverbal emotional cues we need to pick up on in order to get ‘the whole story’ of what is being communicated.

“The left side of the brain contains the primary processing centers for both speech comprehension and emotions. Since the left side of the brain is connected to the right side of the body, favoring your right ear can help you better detect the emotional nuances of what someone is saying. Try keeping your posture straight, your chin down, and tilting your right ear towards the speaker—this will make it easier to pick up on the higher frequencies of human speech that contain the emotional content of what’s being said.”

Non verbal communication will 'give clues and additional information about what a person is saying and also offer information about the emotions and attitudes'.

How you listen is just as important to being a good communicator - literally.
