We tend to ignore our tone and how we communicate with others, but we shouldn’t because how we communicate is the catalyst and key to respect and trust in our relationships.
Our tone, style and voice for how we communicate is important, because what we say is ingrained and permanent. Conversations aren’t something we can just undo. Our tone shapes not only what we say, but how we carry what we say.
Get our communication wrong and it colours people’s perceptions of us, how they perceive and receive our message. How we express ourselves must be carefully thought of and cultivated as part of our style, who we are. It’s up to us to decide how to maximise its value.
But the key to any successful communication is being able to communicate with integrity and truth and for our communication to be authentic. Our conversations must be aligned with universal values. Without those values in place our relationships and lives will struggle.
We must be considered trustworthy, responsible, respectful and loyal, otherwise everything else will be considered inappropriate. And when how what we say is considered inappropriate, like mud it will stick.
