"The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn't being said."
A man by the name of Peter Drucker said that. When I stumbled across it, I thought about how well it sums up our jobs in the Writing Center as consultants. We are, after all, communicators. We are listeners. We are fellow classmates, searching for what isn't being said.
The fun part has been learning how to listen for it and what to do with it once it's been found.
On another note - this is officially the first posting of the 2010 - 2011 school year. May many more follow after.
