Think Before you Speak

Think Before you Speak

  • June 5, 2021

Communication skills are essential for any leader, but the art of great leadership is the ability to think before you speak.


Here’s a model you can use to help practice the art:


T    Is it true?

H   Is it helpful?

I    Will it improve anything?

N   Is it necessary?

K   Is it kind?


You have to PAUSE, take a breath, THINK, using the model above, then SPEAK.


Simple yet effective.
