Hey, welcome to Think React Lead. My name’s Dom Faussette. The quieter you are, and the less you say in your conversation, the more effective you’ll be. I’ve led a countless number of teams, whether it was a small team in the military or more specifically corporate teams, and I’ve had peers that I’ve had the luxury of working with.

But what I have found is that your emotions cause you to talk more and talk louder. And when you talk louder, whether you think it’s yelling or not, it falls on deaf ears. And when you talk more, you end up losing your point. And again, whoever you’re communicating with can’t connect with you. They can’t even follow you. Usually this is the leader to the employees. If you say less and speak in a tone of value, then you’ll get more out of your conversation.
