What they see is more important to them than what that they hear. Great communicators never overlook the emotions and feelings of their audience. They value the power of non-verbal communication and implement it in their speech and action. This helps them to be popular among both the elite and the masses.
Most often we miss the problem while looking for a solution. Problem solving is the ability to identify and recognize the elements of disharmony at the initial stages. Most people tend to ignore the primitive signals.More importantly we fail to acknowledge the fact that we could have problems in our lives because we are either fearful or too obsessed with the lives of other people.
