Four Ground Rules For Good Communication

I spent most of yesterday at a strategic planning session for the Winnipeg Friends of the Library. I sit on their Board of Directors.  The facilitator who was leading our discussion gave us four ground rules at the beginning of our day. I thought the rules were excellent guidelines for any kind of interpersonal interaction whether with family members, friends, new acquaintances or work colleagues.

Be flexible and open-minded to the ideas of others.
