Another way that people form impressions about us is our manner of speaking and the content. Our usage of words, voice quality and tone and the way that we project our voices can say a lot about how we view ourselves, what we do for a living and how we process information, interactions & situations.
I gave a short talk on appearance, poise and behavior for the ushering and welcome ministry of Focus on Christ International Ministries.
Sometimes, the atmosphere in a social gathering can be ruined just because of conversation topics that are considered taboo, off-limits or too intrusive. Asking about a person’s salary, talking about someone’s sex life, poking fun at religion or bullying people because of it… it may seem like others have accepted this as a norm, but it’s good to be reminded about manners, respect & courtesy.
