And oh what a mess we can make of it, more mess and muck than clear communication.
Take jargon for example. Professional jargon. Like a dentist. Like my dentist (that’s him above).
Despite the hardware in my mouth recently, I had to laugh when he turned to his assistant to talk about my ‘heavy, non-useful contact.’
Far from a large, lazy colleague, turns out a ‘heavy, non-useful contact’ is a tiny bit of a tooth that can stick up and prevent a proper bite.
Check your perspective. Check your bite. Check your communication.
