We are all aware that communication involves exchanging words and listening to one another. There is, however, an often underestimated means of communicating that can be as profound yet even more powerful than spoken words. Daniel Henderson said, “Our messages tell people what to do. Our lives show them how to do it.” What I […]
I am in Taipei as I write this post. The McDonald’s store near my hotel is packed with people. Not everyone speaks English but the universal language of marketing make customers believe that Ronald and his fries are good…I mean, “bad.” When Bad Becomes Good The picture of Ronald above as “the Joker” (courtesy of […]
