How Does the Language You Use Reflect Who You Are?
TRY Coaching – Power of Language
Throughout my many years of self-exploration and as the proverbial salesperson in the business world, I came to realize that most people’s verbal communication is nothing more than an outpouring of words with little thought given to the impact of those words from the listener’s perspective.
We are all too busy in our own heads thinking about what we want to say or how we might sound, never really tuning in to what others are saying to us, and rarely asking for clarification or acknowledgement. Genuine, meaningful, productive conversation can be very hard to find.
Cesar Chavez, Civil Rights Activist says: “Our language is the reflection of ourselves. A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers”
As an Executive and Communications Career coach, nyc, I am committed to helping my clients understand that communication skills are one of the most powerful tools they can own as human beings and leaders. When they focus in and become aware of the words that they choose in any given moment, they have the power to transform the way they interact with managers, staff and others.
Without realizing it, our words reveal who we are at our deepest core level. When we pay attention to the words we use and how we use them in our daily conversations, we begin to take control of our communication with others rather than having the communication take control of us.
How would you rate your communication skills? Are you confident that what you are saying is being heard and understood by others? Are they truly paying attention to what you have to say? Or are they nodding their heads without any real grasp of your meaning and purpose?
In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing business landscape, can you afford not to stop and consider what you are saying? Why not begin today to pay attention to the words you use and see if harnessing the Power of Language doesn’t start to change your life.
