Powerful words delivered with loud powerful voices can be explosive – massively destructive, or ‘motivationally powerful’. Words have power. Voices have power. So do facial expressions.
Sometimes we are better servant to others is we lower our voice, soften our expression and use the power of our words, passion of our voice, to lift instead of push down – to draw people out, draw them near rather than push them away or aside. Powerfully, just as magnets attractor or repel. We are all not the same, we are all un-alike – that’s where the magic lives.
When you get loud, when you are strong and powerful – is your message uplifting or abusive? My guess is that it’s at one end or the other of the spectrum … bombast or beautiful. Which?
Hmmmmm - had some time recently to catch up on your columns. I too would like a second chance. I'm recently a victim of war on overhead costs and am starting my networking campaign to land a new opportunity. I'd like to meet you for lunch or coffee sometime early in the New Year. I'll reach out the 1st or second week of January if that's agreeable and works for you. In the meantime best of the season to you and yours and here's to a healthy and happy 2017!, Best Regards, SC, Calgary, AB
