The difference between strength and aggression

women leadership | WomenAdvance.comYour voice is one of your most important leadership tools. It imparts information, suggests meaning, and creates relationship.

I like this article, which makes savvy distinctions between the expression of strength and aggression. In a nutshell:

1. “Think about what’s driving you.”
Your feelings will always leak through your voice.
Self-awareness will help you to monitor your “drivers”
and adjust your voice accordingly.

2.  “Control your pacing.”
Aggressors unleash a punchy outpouring of statements and questions.
Instead, keep a steady and steadying pace.

3.  “Monitor your tone.”
As with pacing, tone needs to be grounded and confidence-inspiring.
No need for a sharp tongue to assert your leadership.
