Conscious Communicator Power Word #56 – DIPLOMACY (

This week’s 2nd Power Word defines high-level leadership communication, “DIPLOMACY!”

Being able to communicate with DIPLOMACY distinguishes mediocre leaders from the champion leaders.

Communicating with DIPLOMACY is the manifestation of my communication triad of Prompt, Direct & Respectful.

DIPLOMATIC communication epitomizes a direct, but empathetic and compassionate style. It builds buy-in, commitment and trust in others.

To communicate with DIPLOMACY takes tremendous patience and compassion and requires the communicator to be steeped in Stephen Covey’s habit of “seek first to understand, then to be understood.”

How good are you are communicating with DIPLOMACY? What skills do you need to nurture to do it better?

’til next time,  make it a great weekend!
