Apparently today (25th April) is National Telephone Day!
I’ve had this old phone for many years and love the idea that someone in the 1940/50’s installed this in their home as the latest fashion.
Since then, many people will have used it to share good news, sad news, important news and of course simply gossip on it!
What makes it even better, is it still works! And although we use our mobiles on a daily basis, this bit of history still sits proudly in the hallway (where all good phones use to sit!) and reminds me that while the tools we use to communicate are ever changing, the importance of communication remains the same.
In fact, the topic of communication is the foundation to every Management Development programme I’ve ever run… because when we improve how we communicate, we improve our chances of better outcomes.
So, happy National Telephone Day! I hope you have some great conversations... on the phone and in person!
