Unfortunately, many people are not aware of their ineffective communication styles and that they can improve in this area.

LET'S TALK, LET'S LISTEN: THE ART OF COMMUNICATION
A Personal Note from May May Ali
“Most of my life, I’ve been fascinated with how people express themselves. As a child, I observed the differences in the way my family members and peers spoke to one another. In my early 20’s, I became more aware of my own communication style in certain situations, but I usually justified my style as being a fixed part of my personality. In my early 30’s, I realized that if a few people complained about how I expressed myself, I needed to take a closer look inward to identify any communication habits that were potentially having negative effects on my relationships. Fortunately, my search for answers garnered a new self-awareness that guided me toward making improvements. The key that unlocked this door of personal growth was a true understanding of what effective communication entails. I don’t claim to be perfect at this, but when my conversations go awry, I try to pinpoint the role I played and the impact of my communication choices. Yes, it is a choice, and being cognizant of how we speak and listen to others is a continuous learning journey. If more people would open their hearts and minds to learn how to communicate effectively, humanity would benefit from more empathy, tolerance, collaboration and stronger relationships.”
