In a recent post we discussed Tact and how it is perhaps the most powerful concept in terms of mastering the art of positive persuasion or, “Winning Without Intimidation.” It’s also a great way of simply becoming a pleasant person to be around.
I quoted my Dad, who defines tact as, “The language of strength.” Those who master the art of tact are able to make a “corrective point” in a way that helps a person to receive it rather than become defensive or angry.
We concluded with a challenge for us all to work on this very important skill (or, we could even say, “trait” if our goal is to become “a tactful person”) for the next 21 days and see how we do.
Now that we’re 10 days into it, let’s look at a few examples from past articles:
Please don’t feel any pressure or obligation to read any or all of the articles. They are simply there as examples if you feel that would help you in your “tact-quest.” 🙂
Meanwhile, how are you doing so far? Please let us know.
