I have just started learning to be diplomatic in my professional life though given a chance I would never prefer to be diplomatic in my professional or personal life. I would prefer to convey my thoughts and opinions point blank such that it is taken on face value. But then in the corporate world you get to meet people wherein tone down your choice of words to convey your message. The opposite person would not like to take things in a point blank manner.
But then this is the corporate world, what about our personal lives? Is it OK to be diplomatic in your personal life to avoid confrontations? But then don’t you think that you would be losing on the personal connection with your near and dear ones if you time and again have to keep playing with words to convey your thoughts? Or is that the better option considering our fast paced life where we don’t have time to spend happy hours with our loved ones forget confrontations?
