Texting Guidelines

Text communication has become ever-present in our culture. More than ever, people rely on texting to converse with colleagues, friends, family and lovers, as well as form new relationships that might never progress to a face to face encounter. As we text more, we discover unique challenges that require new sensitivities and skills. When you cannot not see or hear the other person, you are deprived of the visual and auditory cues of facial expression, body language and voice dynamics that convey emotion and meaning. Have you ever experience a miscommunication issue arising from this? Please join us to find out how to minimize problematic texting scenarios!
