There are a lot of “whisperers” out there.
Dog Whisperer, Ghost Whisperer, Chicken Whisperer, Orchid Whisperer, you name it… The idea is that a whisperer conveys knowledge or information quietly or secretly. And I agree, it can be a very effective way to convey certain messages.
But today’s Time Well Spent from Kronos reminded me that some messages are better communicated in a different manner. Some information needs to be boldly, directly and maybe even loudly conveyed. I’ve seen on more than one occasion a small group win the debate or sell their idea because they were vocal and tenacious.
The most effective communications consider both the message and the medium.
