Did you know that our bodies, via all of their five senses, take in approximately three million bits of information every minute?
If that is a surprise to you, it should come as no surprise that we filter the information and process it differently in each individual. It is partly due to this huge amount of processed information that we are often lacking in our communication effectiveness.
There is a tendency to assume that what we are communicating is easily understood. This is because we already understand what we are trying to communicate. As we have probably found out on a number of occasions, this is not always the case.
