Do you find yourself saying whatever that is in your mind to just about anyone you see at work?
Indeed, we are all encouraged to engage in honest and courageous conversations, but bear in mind that we sometimes say things inappropriately without considering the emotions of the other person.
Depending on the situation you are in and the end goal you want to achieve at the end of the day, the key to effective communication is to be tactful and respectful at all times.
So, recognise the continuum in communication, where you practise discretion on when you can share information or ideas unfiltered, and when you need to share them with some levels of filter to get the results you envision for that particular conversation.
