Make all your communications have the following attributes, nothing more, nothing less:
Honesty-Is is true to the best of your knowledge, understanding and belief?
Accuracy-Is what you are about to say, entirely accurate?
Clarity-Will you phrase your communication clearly for understanding?
Completeness-Are you intending to leave anything out?
Kindness- Is it shared in kindness?
If you can answer all those questions, you may be able to communicate on a higher level, increasing your odds for better outcomes!
