The ability to communicate is something we all have in common, but how we present ourselves through communication can either make or break us in the eyes and ears of our peers. It is our pleasure to help others see their own strengths and, when necessary, open up the doorway of better communication techniques, encouraging them to take the baton of self-improvement when they are ready. There are few experts in this art, so we must learn and grow from those around us. Instructional organizations, such as Toastmasters, help individuals by improving the abilities we already have.
Some of our members are good writers, storytellers, actors, poets, thinkers, motivators, etc. and we all learn from one another to perfect our own communicational niche. Unfortunately, some people (even those who appear educated) don't believe that proper, clear and concise communication is important. They often lose themselves in the quagmire of "ums", "ahs", "you knows", or the stark misconception that they can do no wrong. It has been said that no one can be all things to all people, but such presumptions have not stopped some from trying.
