Are We Communicating or What? Part 2 of 3
It looked like I was going to write this great, witty piece about stupid business jargon for you for this week. But as sometimes happens, life and of course holidays got in the way.

Oh, and while you’re there, be sure to link to me. My profile is www.linkedin.com/in/jimwgilbert.
In two weeks, we’ll continue with the last in this series, and I’ll tell you my secrets on how to powerfully communicate with people every time.
