Being diplomatic is sometimes referred to as keeping your opinions to yourself or being a people-pleaser.
But diplomacy does not necessarily mean not voicing your opinions or making yourself heard. To be diplomatic means to evaluate a situation before speaking or acting and to take the best course of action without being overly brash or bold.
It takes the ability to interpret things a little subtlety and knowing how and what to say to be diplomatic. While diplomacy can be difficult in certain situations, especially in those that personally affect you or that involve something you feel strongly about, a few basic tips and reminders can make it easy to be diplomatic in everyday situations.
** THINK BEFORE YOU ACT
**FOCUS ON THE FACTS OF THE SITUATION
** USE DESCISIVE LANGUAGE
** BE NON-CONFRONTATIONAL
** AVOID HIGHLY EMOTIONAL SITUATIONS
**REFUSE TO BE INTERRUPTED
**CHOOSE A DIPLOMATIC POSTURE
** STAND YOUR GROUND
PRACTICE MAKE PERFECT.
