Six o’clock is about the time I come home from a full day of class, work and a mildly maintained social life. With a coffee in hand, I sink into my 70’s style sofa crammed against the wall of our microscopic college apartment and begin my nighttime ritual. Phone? Check. Laptop on? Check. TV on and season one of “The Office” blaring? Check. Indie rock playing from my tablet? Check. Doing homework while all of this is happening? Check. Sensory overload? Definitely check.
March Madness has begun. Brackets are being developed, lucky jerseys are being worn daily-fans are ready. When it comes to marketing a meeting however, there is no place for madness.

You’ve probably heard of the book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum. Mr. Fulghum wrote about the value of the basic skills taught in Kindergarten. Communication Skills- Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing are skills that we learn and practice in Kindergarten. As a former Kindergarten teacher myself, I can tell you that these skills do not come naturally and we practiced them daily. Improving your communication skills can make a big impact on what kind of impression you make with people in your work environment. I don’t consider myself an expert communicator as I am still practicing those skills I learned in Kindergarten. I intend to share effective communication that I have recognized through the years as best communication practices in a work environment.
