You may have heard it said, if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all. Well that saying simply doesn’t apply in business. Attaining success requires speech.
Surveys show that, on average, you are having as many as 30 conversations each day, speaking some 16,000 words (male or female). Yet ironically, when presented with the opportunity to say something many of us appear to be at a total loss.
Along with a few other individuals, I recently received an award from a company I consult for. While on stage it was shocking to see some recipients mimic a deer in headlights. Thankfully, my preparation allowed me to overcome a change in venue, staging, and allotted time.
Why not see the words you utter daily, and the conversations you have routinely, as speeches? They are!
Get the most out of every opportunity to communicate…
Until next time,
Speak with purpose…
