A P
ersonal, Confessional Illustration

  • In creating this landing page, The Harmonizer in Me initially moved me to write too personally. I remembered to “court first” and revised it to be somewhat less personal.
  • I wrote a heart-felt tribute (well, they were love-letters) to the styles and realized on reflection that they were too touchy-feely for an initial report. I remembered to “converse in context.” I can demonstrate how I relate to and appreciate the different styles without gushing about them for five pages!
  • I kept my focus too positive to the exclusion of listing foibles and offering remedies. I remembered “useful feedback is a great gift.”

I balanced The Harmonizer in Me to create a more effective landing page – and saved some heart for later.

You

How well did you relate to all of this? If you are a high Harmonizer, you probably identified with almost everything I wrote. If your inner Harmonizer is tempered by other styles, you probably recognized yourself in some aspects, but didn’t sense I was talking totally about you.

In part 1 of The SpeakStrong Method eCourse, you can see just how high or moderate your inner Harmonizer is. You also will get a better sense of how the other styles influence you.
