For much of my life I was a Library Manager.
Married now for the second time round and between us we have 4 children and 1 grand daughter.
Live a block from the beach on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia and now about to venture to the Clarence Valley in Northern NSW.
No Pacts for me.
Plan to use "I" rather than "you" in your next difficult conversation.
Sorry, DC........I don't have this many difficult conversations........and I do know to use I rather than you when seeking a solution.
Today's photo is of a Royal Poinciana.........snapped this yesterday on our travels.
Watch a person's nonverbal signals, such as posture or tone of voice, in 1 conversation today.
I love watching what people tell me with their body language.........especially if their words are telling me something different. Hubby is a classic........he was bought up to say "It's ok", yet he has a thousand tells that indicate otherwise.
Many thanks for all of your wonderful comments about my communication skills......muchly appreciated.
Today's photo is of the Mann River........was practicing my photo composition!
Identify 1 great communicator you know, and plan to ask him or her for a few pointers.
I have done communications training a multitude of times, so I won't be doing this today.......but I am easily able to contact my favourite communicator who bills herself as the Goddess of Public Speaking!
Today's photo is of our river.......the Clarence River......and affectionately called "The Big River"...........I love the opposite bank.
Plan to practice a difficult conversation before you have it.
I prefer to have difficult discussions when they arise, rather than stewing over them and needing to practice them......but if this arises, I will consider practicing my words.
Today's photo is of one of our visiting Rainbows......perched in next doors' pink frangipani tree.
Include some human connection in 1 electronic communication today, such as a greeting or emoticon.
This is the weirdest track..........how do they think people electronically connect?
Of course I include a greeting, as well as a sign off........and occasionally, an emoticon. Using Electronic communication methods hasn't meant that I have lost my basic communication skills and manners!
Today's photo is a cheeky magpie........just voted Australia's most popular bird!
Today, bring up a recent conversation to show someone that you were listening.
Ahh, I had a conversation with a client yesterday, and I will let them know that I heard exactly what she wanted.........and then deliver that something!
Today's photo is another beach shot of Yamba.
Spend 5 minutes thinking about your role in a recent problem with a co-worker or loved one.
I am totally aware of my role..........sometimes I am the peacemaker, sometimes I can be the instigator, sometimes I can be the bystander..........it all depends on what the problem is, and the other person involved.
Today's photo is more from our hailstorm.
