We’re all happy when other people understand what we’re passionate about. Our job, our research, our special interests. But we all know how difficult it can be to explain something when we know more about it than our audience. To Know like Silk means inviting other people to care about the knowledge that we are offering them.
In these focus sessions, we ask questions such as:
Here are some answers: Presenting your knowledge means sharing it. Letting others see things the way you do. If you show that you care, your audience will care, too. Silk flows in clear contours. When we share what we know, we flow outwards. We trust that other people will be able to see what we do, if we let them.
Kindness Communication is the key.
