At times, being blunt can be charming. People can appreciate a person who cuts to the chase and doesn’t waste their time with empty compliments or wishy-washy sentiments. Dust off your direct manner of speaking and don’t be afraid to tell it like it is. You’ll know just how to use the right amount of diplomacy without diluting your message. You can make people understand that they’re in the wrong without making them feel like you’re accusing them of anything.
