« Live Crisis Scenarios in Digital | Main | PR's Use of Digital Media »


Wow. Very powerful post, Valeria (spelled correctly!). I'm all about connections. I think they are what makes this crazy world work.

Amazing story about how Marshall Goldsmith talked WITH the women exclusively. Wow.

Questions are such important things! Even the wrong question asked with an attitude of full engagement can lead to deepening the relationship. The connection becomes possible when you stop and listen to the answer. Listening is acknowledgement of the dignity of the other person. Listening makes the questions powerful!
