Consultant Spotlight

In all forms, communication is about understanding, or the intent to be understood. We write, present, and visualize our message for audience comprehension. Our audience changes, and we adapt our delivery to their needs. Still, our goal of being understood remains the same. Simultaneously, we do not want to be misunderstood. The anxiety of miscommunication is one of the more enduring, stubborn obstacles of this process. This anxiety can be paralyzing, halting communication altogether. Peer consultations help confront this obstacle. In reviewing, revising, and brainstorming with others, we learn who can understand our message and how best we can deliver and package it. Together, we're practicing how best to communicate to be understood.
