The hit show Hamilton provides the advice to “smile more and speak less.” I would amend that and drop the first part though a pleasant demeanor can also be helpful. I suspect you may have heard the “you should smile more” advice before in a condescending or paternalistic manner. I like the idea of speaking less for many reasons.

Despite my natural inclination to “think to talk”, I often find myself going on too long – particularly if I am passionate about the subject. I also recognize that some are “talk to think” and must verbalize and hear the words for their ideas to be fully formed. In either case, or if you are somewhere in the middle, there are some benefits as a leader and manager to talking less to achieve better outcomes.
