Fortune Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, LinkedIn, Facebook, and National Public Radio are only a few of the print, electronic and digital media bristling with stories about the need for face-to-face communication. There are numerous sources calling daily for human connection and interaction on a meaningful level.

Warren Buffet once commented he didn’t know how to do a handshake over the telephone.

Researchers are discovering the downsides of electronic and digital communication and how much of humanity is lost without face-to-face interaction. With all our devices, we are missing a connection.

I see titles like: “The mouth is mightier than the pen.” “Breathing is the key to Persuasive Public Speaking.” “Social media is a major contributor to career anxiety.” “It’s not just what you say but how you say it that can make the difference between success and failure.”

Millennials rushing to be entrepreneurs are struggling to learn how to use their mouths instead of their thumbs. They are slowly finding you can’t pitch to potential investors by texting. They are discovering how powerful an instrument the human voice can be and how using their minds, voices and bodies effectively can generate human connection.

Mind, voice and body in sync is a surefire way to effectively connect with others.

We are constantly selling a product, service or idea to someone else. We are constantly being judged on how effective and convincing we are in selling a product, service or idea. In the end “The only thing more powerful than a big idea is your ability to effectively communicate/sell that idea to others.”
