What is Communication

leave a comment »

Ask people to give you a definition of “what is Communication”. And I am sure there are many views. But most of, I believe those are incomplete. So here my question to you; “What is Communication to you?” (leave me your view below). Most would probably answer; Is it [a] to be able to speak so people can understand you? [b] to know a bunch of good words and their usage? [c] being able to write a good business letter? [d] reading an article and understand what you read or [e] listening well and understand. We could say all of them are right. Anything else  missing? How about “the ability to respond!”

Let me explain. We have all the modern and mobile technology at hand that eases our ability to interact  with others. Yet, people do not bother to reply. I remember when eMail came Read the rest of this entry »

Seven Survival Skills

leave a comment »

What is your take on innovation? Do you leave it to others because you think there is nothing you could innovate? If your answer is Yes, I urge you to watch this video by Tony Wagner – others can/should also take their time to enjoy the talk. Tony highlights seven skills factors that anyone should have, kind of a survival kit.

Being myself in Communication, it strikes me again and again, and yes I agree with Tony, how incapable not only today’s young people have become in expressing themselves – written or oral. Here a quote on effective oral and written communication we all should keep as a bookmark handy:

“The biggest skill people are missing is the ability to communicate: both written and oral presentations. It’s a huge problem for us.”
Annmarie Neal, Vice President for Talent Management at Cisco Systems

Capital in the 21st Century

leave a comment »

Reading the CNN Edition – How to become super, super wealthy (by John MacIntosh). He wrote about a book by the author Tom Piketty that caused a predictable stir among the pro-equality set because the author is a French economist with the gall to propose a global tax on wealth. But putting aside this naïve, socialist claptrap, the book is a veritable treasure trove of advice on getting into (or staying in) the top 1%.

Here the quote that says it all:

The book confirms what you already know firsthand: The rich are getting richer; the really rich are getting really richer; capital is hot; labor is not.

The obvious implication is that you must find a job where the distinction between capital and labor is blurry. A job where you can take a slice off the top by getting paid as if you owned a piece of action even though you don’t. Because without some capital working on your behalf, no amount of even the hardest and most skillful labor will get you anywhere near the top. (How many doctors or engineers join the country club these days? Virtually none.)
