SPEAKSTRONG GOES INDIRECT – and SHIFTS ITS MOTTO IN 2011
It’s time to make the change official. For years, the SpeakSTRONG Method has been guided by the principles of communicating clearly, kindly and directly. That has felt a bit restrictive for some time now. That’s why, in 2011, the guiding principles are changing to speak: clearly, sincerely and effectively.
Clarity communicates discernment – thoughts, facts and opinion. It gives voice to the mind. Clarity stays.
Kindness and sincerity are both communications of the heart. However, you can be kind without having your heart really in it. You can’t be sincere without having your heart really in it. “Kind” is transforming into “sincere” in the SpeakSTRONG motto.
Direct and effective communication both are communications of will. Directness is a quality I and many of my readers have needed to develop. However, sometimes a less direct approach is more effective than direct one. We need to know how and when to be direct, and how and when to be indirect. We balance both approaches to be effective – and even transformative.
