A “new” way to communicate

Many years ago, I used to work with a smart scientist Dennis Konasewich at the International Joint Commission (IJC). The Commission is a US/Canadian agency responsible for overseeing trans-boundary environmental issues between the two countries. One of Dennis’ two sons – Paul – worked at Microsoft for a time . I knew him when he was a toddler. Now he is a smart young entrepreneur.

Paul is the co-founder of a movement/technique  designed to help improve how people communicate. He calls it “supportive listening” . Since presentation and communication are closely linked and dependent on each other, Paul’s technique is germane to our blog here.

Go to his website and see if you can apply some of his concepts  in your presentation.
