It's not just what you say, it's how you say it

Communication involves three elements: words, tone of voice, and body language. Words only account for 7% of the message. The tone of your voice accounts for 38%, and body language accounts for 55%. Therefore, it's essential to pay attention to your tone of voice and body language to ensure that your message is synchronized.

Active listening is crucial in effective communication. When someone talks to you, it's important to turn towards them, face them directly, listen closely to what they say, nod and pay attention. By actively listening, you're showing the other person that you value their thoughts and opinions.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
