Top 10 Communication Quotes

This week’s posts will focus on communication. We’ve written articles on visualizing, etiquette, learning and teaching and all of these posts circle back around to good communication. Everything we do or say hinges on good communication or poor communication.

In schools, communication is the key for a successful classroom and for learning to take place. At StarShine, communication is one of our key philosophies. In fact, of the 15 StarShine Guiding Principles, 7 encompass communication skills.

To kick off our communication week, here are our top 10 communication quotes:

5.      “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
