I have never talked about silence yet in the context of business and in organizations. Silence is as powerful as the words we speak. Learn to use it intelligently.
Silence during conversations is a sign of real power.
Not trying to fill the void and overpower the other person..
No trying to put words into their mouths...
Not anticipating the negative thereby undermining your efforts...
Not being tentative, uneasy, and ready to compromise...
Just plain silence, creates the conditions to ask the right question.
Let the ideas simmer until it is ready.
When words are not enough, silence is the best expression.
When it is ready, it is time to act.
How are you doing with silence?
