Part of our 2019 strategy will be to blog once a month and utilize our social media as a way to get our stories out to a wider audience.
Communication in an odd way was the theme for the month. For the first time ever I got to do a radio show. The Mo Ray Show on Sunday morning on 570 WKBN (head over to their website and listen to the January 6, 2019 podcast). It was a wonderful experience discussing national and local politics and taking listener questions. I believe K.O. Consulting, LLC was represented well. Communication is one of the most difficult tasks to undertake, even in professional settings. A radio show is an interesting contrast, because you don't know the scope and depth of the subject matter your audience has and you can't see physical attributes (head nodding or eye contact) that one gains from an in person discussion. On the radio you can only hope your audience understands the message you are conveying.
Similarly with clients, even when you think messages and communication is clear, that is not always the case. January 2019 taught me once again the power of our words, communication, context and comprehension. As a consultant I vow to do better and ensure my message is communicated effectively and ensure that the client understands their responsibility to this communication.
