Why is Human Communication Falling On Deaf Ears?

Eugene, OR. October 7, 2008 - "To Be Or Not To Be," that is the question that is
being asked again. Why is it that human communication is beginning to fail and
potentially cause a breakdown of the social fabric of the world economy?

Jed Reay has spent his entire career studying the effects of human communication,
and he has found that far too many times human interaction is used superficially,
and that social and political issues bear pressure on what we say and how we say it.

Reay is quoted as saying that, "We have come to a point in our everyday business
communications where we are not paying attention to what we are saying, that we are
just chattering for the sake of communication." Reay goes on to say that, "We must
understand the dynamics of our business communication and how what we say affects
our prospects, customers, employees, and business partners."

Reay felt so strongly about this issue that he compiled a who's who list of success
entrepreneurs from the online and offline world and interviewed them for his current
book, "Why Can't We Say What We Mean." In a recent interview about his book, Reay
was quoted as saying:

"The reason I did this is because over the past 5-7 years I've noticed a shift
amongst our society AND amongst my business colleagues that has troubled me. Have
you ever gotten an email, a voice mail, been in a live telephone conversation or a
live face-to-face conversation with someone, and afterwards you got the feeling that
you had just been slimed by the ghost buster gun? You have no idea if you were
understood or if your message was even delivered. Have you had that conversation
with someone and you know they did not hear a word you said, but you felt that all
they were concerned with was their own agenda?"

These are just a few of the many issues that Reay addresses with the likes of
Stephen Pierce, Larry Benet, Dr. Fran Harris, and others.

Last month, Reay was interviewed about his book by radio host Ryan Celestain on his
show, Dare to Dream. Celestain co-hosts with Greg Norman, and together they offer
listeners viewpoints for success in life as well as in business. Reay is scheduled
to do another radio interview with South Florida's voice of reason, Kandee G. on
1360 WKAT.
