Communications

Mark Goldfinch speaking as guest speaker at the Networkers Networking, Kenward House.

Communication is such a natural part of life that we often overlook its essential counterpart: analysis. More than that, we don’t recognise how much analysis is instinctive, instantaneous and therefore ‘below the radar’. This is true of individuals as much as organisations. As our communications become more precise and better tailored to their ultimate purpose, so our analysis has to become more meticulous and finely-honed… and definitely more thoughtful. Without that we run the constant risk that, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Often attributed to George Bernard Shaw, Quote Investigator identified William Hollingsworth Whyte as the original sources of this quotation. He wrote: “The great enemy of communication, we find, is the illusion of it. We have talked enough; but we have not listened. And by not listening we have failed to concede the immense complexity of our society – and thus the great gaps between ourselves and those with whom we seek understanding.” (Fortune, 1950, via Quote Investigator).

This is the problem we seek to solve for you, in English or Arabic. How?
