‘Speak to others as you speak to your Guru, listen to others as you listen to your Guru’,

told us our Guru in 1988, and I learned the essence of communication skills.

It has been a life long journey to put it into practice, as a corporate leader and as an entrepreneur, executive coach.

Still working on it.

A friend, who returned from a long break from a vacation at Bali recently said,

‘I listen to the paddy grow….’ . 

Communication is not about me, as the communicator. But the other person.

As I moved from corporate role to coaching, this made more sense. From a command & control to empowering, in communication.

What is the essence of communication?  Communion
