Don’t talk unless you can improve the silence

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the importance of silence in coaching conversations.

And it reminded me of some of the most powerful insights that came from my last 3 day intensive Lead with Impact programme.

One of the most powerful was this:

The stillest person in the room has most gravitas.

Think about it.

Busyness, running around like a headless chicken, speaking for the sake of it, interrupting….. too many of us spend too much time on ‘broadcast’ and not enough on ‘receive’.

None of this helps us have positive impact, leadership presence or gravitas.

So what does?

A few things – all of which can be learned.

If you’d like to know more about my Lead with Impact programme that is GUARANTEED to help you improve in all of these areas (I offer a money-back guarantee) you can find all the details here.

And remember this.

The stillest person in the room has most gravitas.
