Stop ignoring the unseen & the unheard

Seek out the unsaid. Too often we focus on what's visible and what's said. Reach out and find new voices to keep your conversations fresh. Wait and let the quit and the considered fill the silence.

Don't let your vocal colleagues fill the void.

Do you ever look to see what's stopped happening? Who's just turned silent?
