1. Especially if no-one is listening.

    Communication is fast becoming a lost art:
    One must start with a baseline, upon which both parties can agree.
    Then all the relevant information must be given, until the listener is able to see the same picture as the speaker.
    Then the listener must consider what has been said, before offering an opinion.
    Judgement must also be suspended, and goodwill employed.
    Then each person must reverse roles.
    All of this must happen naturally and easily.
    And that is probably why it usually doesn't :)

  2. Yes, I agree with you The Crow.Every one wishes to talk and not to listen. Besides,E mails and SMS have replaced effective communication.
