4 Ts of Communication

This is a great framework developed by More To Be that you can
use in any communication senior. 

​Timing is a key piece of communicating effectively.

  • Is this a good time to bring this up?

  • Am I being rational or emotional?

  • Is this a good time to hear them out?

The tone of your voice often conveys more than your words do.

  • What is the tone in my voice and my body language?

  • What is the tone of our relationship?

  • What is the overall tone of the environment we’re in at this moment?

The technique is how you say it

  • Am I starting out with the positive?

  • Am I using words like always and never?

  • Am I owning my actions or playing the victim?

Tell people the TRUTH

  • Is what I am saying a truth?

  • Is what they are saying to me a truth that I need to hear even If their timing, tone, and technique stinks?

  • Is it possible for me to be teachable, in spite of how I feel, and apply this truth to my life?
