If you have ever opened your mouth and spoken, chances are you have been misunderstood or have miscommunicated. Tim Stevens has a great post about communication errors.
He lists 6 Common Communication Errors (go to his blog for the explanation):
- Say too little.
- Say too much.
- Talk to the wrong people.
- Lose sight of emotional impact.
- Forget to sequence.
- Rush the process.
I also think this is a good post over at Bad Language.
