My random thoughts, observations and musings on all subjects of interest to communication professionals.

Trust is the key to engagement. And trust has a circulation relationship with communication: open communication builds trust and when trust is present, improved communication results, leading to more trust and so forth. Communication, especially in hard economic times...

For the past several months, Randy and I have been organizing our upcoming move from Pennsylvania to Arizona. At a bon voyage party last week, a wise friend confided, “Every time I move, I learn more about who I am.”  That resonated with me like a siren in an echo cham...

I’ve just returned to Phoenixville PA from a four-month stint as a “snowbird” in Phoenix, AZ. The contrast between the Sonoran desert landscape and the lush, green, rolling hills of Pennsylvania in the spring couldn’t be greater.

I “never cease to be amazed” that this issue continues to arise; it seems a no-brainer to me that we should want and demand that the members of our leadership hold the credential that we say is a distinguishing mark of professionalism, dedication to a set of principle...

Osama Bin Laden is history. That’s a fact you could not have missed even if you lived, as he was presumed to, in a cave. Whether you witnessed our national chest-thumping with bemusement and embarrassment or you participated enthusiastically in a flag-waving-USA-shouti...
