The Art of Successful Communication

Written By: Danielle Silva Heckenkamp

The Art of Communication - A little bit of common sense, PLEASE!

Our world has become so absorbed with technology, and ourselves, that oftentimes we fail to show concern and generosity towards others.  Even though the majority of people have access to the internet 24/7, they still fail to have any sort of manners.  Yes, there are certain guidelines that should be followed for the internet, the phone and text messaging...huh...who would've guess?!?

1. Sending text messages to your girlfriend/boyfriend's parents is not a good idea.  Pick up the phone and make a call if you need to contact her/him.

2.  If someone sends you an email, whether business or personal, respond immediately!  Even if you need to check something or it may take some time to find out information, never leave the email unanswered.  Even a short reply of, "let me get back to you about that" or "I will check my calendar and let you know".

3.  Posting your negative personal information on social media outlets is not always for your benefit.  It may actually be detrimental if employers see that, because believe me, you will be Google Searched.

4.  Return all phone calls promptly.  This means return the call within a day.  Don't wait a week to return a phone call whether it's for personal or business reasons.

5. Keep the ringtone of your phone professional and at a moderate level.
