Communication: Others lose when you don’t speak what is on your mind
August 14, 2009 in Communication
As I spend more and more time coaching, it is apparent to me that clear communication is critical to the formulation of relationships and trust. When you are in a conversation that is profound and deep, you naturally have thoughts rolling around in your head about the conversation. When you keep those thoughts to yourself, you often lose the opportunity to share concepts and viewpoints that may create a deep and lasting shift in how the other person perceives the issue or opportunity being discussed.
In addition, when things go unsaid that should be said, ill-will could be the ultimate outcome. When you are operating in integrity, you will be honest and forthright in your conversations, working from the highest regard for those you are working with. To not do so is disrespectful to yourself, as well as others.
