3D Ideas 744: Language

Claire writes: “People ask great questions. Many people ask several great questions in quick succession! This dilutes the impact of the first question. When I am giving feedback while listening to people having great conversations, I often need to invite them to stop talking. They have said something great… and it loses its impact with every extra word! It’s common to invite people to say the same thing using 90% less words.
Some of the people we meet work in several languages. One is now speaking publicly in Welsh and has noticed that she now speaks more simply in English. Another is coaching in English more than in his first language because he recognises that he listens better.
Another insight into less being more.”
