AUTHENTIC COMMUNICATION

Tenets of authentic communication taken from The Way of the SEAL by Mark Devine. When you feel the need to speak, you will pause before you respond and open your mouth to speak only if:
  1. What you have to say is truthful
  2. What you have to say adds value and is helpful to the conversation
  3. What you have to say is positive and comes from a place of respect and genuine concern for the other party.
