Take control, don't speak before thinking!

Have you ever encountered time and again those moments where you said something which you regretted deeply? And you have wished you have thought a little bit better or longer before speaking and avoided the embarrassment you faced in front of your friends, colleagues, peers, and bosses.

To think before you speak is a much needed skill and one must be wondering how difficult can it be to think before you speak.

Thinking before speaking is actually rare. It is almost human nature to feel the need to engage in conversations. Sometimes one may feel emotional about a topic and may not think before he / she talks about it.

And it is these moments it can be difficult to stop oneself from blurting out the first thing that pops into that person’s head. There are a variety of reasons that can prevent one from thinking before speaking.

Thus, in this one-day course, we shall demonstrate to you how important it is to inculcate the habit of being able to think before you speak with anyone.
