POWER THOUGHT OF THE WEEK: Powerful Words, Part 2

Power Thought of the Week with Patricia Parham, Ph.D

Powerful Words are not Neutral

In an effort to be polite, neutral words often replace negative ones. Saying a speech was interesting or an idea is novel, fills an empty conversational space. However, these words do not state an opinion around which others may join. In networks, the goal is to connect and engage with authenticity. Platitudes and vague comments waste time and energy -- yours and the recipient’s. Neutral words show weakness. Don’t hide behind them. If you don’t know, say so. If you don’t like something, tactfully say so and why. People can only choose to agree with you when you take a stand. Pick an issue important to you and start a blog. Voice an opinion.
