“It’s hard enough,” says Shannon Tucker, “to be 55 or 60 and functioning at a high level in our fast-paced, 24/7 world. If your communication skills are not up to where they need to be, it will affect you one way or another. You really can’t afford to be communicating at less than 100 percent.”

It may seem cold, but when we focus and pay attention, we accomplish things.”
