Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 77) – John Maxwell

John Maxwell – American Leadership Expert, Speaker and Author

“If there is a more important key to communication than finding common ground, I certainly can’t think of it. Common ground is the place where people can discuss differences, share ideas, find solutions, and start creating something together. Too often people see communication as the process of transmitting massive amounts of information to other people. But that’s the wrong picture. … [C]ommunication is a journey. The more that people have in common, the better the chance that they can take that journey together.”

— John C. Maxwell
