I just realized that I am pretty much in the speaking profession, because most of the value I bring to the clients generated and communicated through speech. Yet before that something crucial must happen and that’s called listening and transforming that listening to understanding. So speech is really tiny part of the whole equation, although very critical.
After thousands of conversations over the phone past two years, I am still beginner on the road towards mastery.
Wise speech does not waste.
Also we humans cone somehow sense when a well thought person speaks. The language and the tone of speech is something totally different.
When was the last time you listened yourself?
