The holidays are the time when most of us like to demonstrate our appreciation and gratitude for family and friends. Wouldn’t it be nice to experience that kind of give and receive gratitude and appreciation every day of the year?
The days of "treat someone like you’d like to be treated" are gone. The new era of communication and showing respect for others is to match and pace. It's about how to consider and assess the way another person communicates. Then discuss items on their level.
It may sound overly simple, but adding purposeful appreciation towards others can be one of the most powerful communication tools you can hone.
