Advances in technology allow us to communicate with more people, more quickly and in more ways than ever. But here’s the catch—technology also affects the quality of our communication. From students to CEOs, word choice affects relationships, our capacity to understand and trust each other, our ability to create successful outcomes and innovative products and services. The impact of word choice plays out not only in interpersonal relationships but also in rites of passage such as college admissions and job searches. Language influences organizational cultures and goals like hitting profit margins. When you think about it, words affect our economy and our quality of life.
