I am fortunate to have a great relationship with the people I work with. We treat one another like family, which makes this blog simple for me to answer. My family, friends, and colleagues are great individuals . I don't believe I have a different way of communicating with one group versus the other. I think they have taught me valuable lessons with respect to effective communication because if I am not clear with a message I have sent, they very readily make it known and I correct my mistakes. These three groups are the reason I try to speak with confidence and clarity.
