When you hear the names Winston Churchill and Mother Theresa, what images or thoughts come to mind? While considered two of the greatest communicators in history, they are markedly different—not only in their origins, but also in their communication behaviors. Churchill was born in Blenheim, England, and is well known for his forceful, dramatic oratory skills. Mother Theresa came from the small town of Skopje, on the Balkan Peninsula, and is considered one of the most successful, soft-spoken orators of all time.
