My friend Gary Loper shared the fact that we are fast approaching International Listening Month, which is March. Gary is going to be hosting a chat on the subject here and I thought you might a visual reminder as to why listening is important when we are talking about working relationships among people:

I just popped up another series of poster about the apathy surrounding National Employee Appreciation Day. You can check out the last of the series by clicking on this descriptive icon:
