I remember growing up and seeing leaders who would yell, scream, and shout to make their point. Sometimes they were even red in the face.
Do you remember leaders like this?
True, they were passionate about their cause. They wanted to share what they knew with the audience. Yet something about them was off-putting.
Nothing about them made me want to get to know them as a person.
What Shouting Says
There’s a lot of noise in our world today. Many people think the way to get over the noise is to shout their message even louder. Crank up the volume and make sure others hear you.
When you begin to shout your mission, you begin to send another message.
- You’re desperate
- You just want to be heard
- You’re disruptive (in a negative way)
