Coming soon: "Strong Language"

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." "Ask not what your country can do for you."  "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."  "You may say I'm a dreamer/But I'm not the only one."

Great writing is everywhere.  It's in the books that captivate us, the speeches that inspire us, the movies that entertain us, the songs that touch us -- the language that changes us.

At CHGR, we love great writing for its inherent beauty, but also for the lessons that it teaches about how to communicate more effectively, which is why we'll soon be introducing the first installment of what will become a regular feature on the CHGR blog: "Strong Language."  We'll look at a piece of writing from various media -- literature, music, film -- and from various fields -- business, law, politics -- and derive key takeaways that can inform and inspire your own internal and external communications.

In our first edition, we'll be looking at a work of art that turned heads in the world of politics, and uses simple phrasing to help its audience look at death -- and life -- in a new way.
