  •  Thinking About More Powerful Communication

    Sunday, May. 20, 2012

     We all make communication choices every day. We send emails, we make phone calls, we may use on-line chat or text messaging. But do we make the best choices when it comes to which content and goals we apply to which tool?

    With more powerful communication systems like the ones the communication & collaboration task force had the pleasure of considering come greater flexibility in how we communicate. The "right" choice for how we choose to use this flexibility is likely based on your job, your organization's norms, and the needs of the particular task.

    A while back I wrote a post about making choices across social media. Friends in the collaboration field have also recently written about communication choices. I'll link to these here, but hope you will add other posts or thoughts in the comments below.
