Do you say what you mean?
Do you express your true self effectively? Or do words fail you?
When your mouth opens, whose voice comes out?
Being someone you're not is hard work. Being you is easy…once you get past persona.
Do you mean what you say?
Do you honor your words? Can people count on what you say?
If you don’t mean it, don’t say it. Talk your walk and then walk your talk. That protects the power of your words.
Do you say what you mean and mean what you say WITHOUT being mean when you say it?
Are your words weapons, or expressions of wisdom?
Sincerity is far more effective than brutal honesty. The SpeakStrong Method is gracefully effective.
What is your communication method?
Do you prepare for important conversations? Or do you wing it?
It’s amazing what deliberate communication skill practice can do to help you express your true self effectively.
You can go cheap or go deep.
Persona projects an image. Personhood radiates you. Which will it be?
