But Bold North is different because it recognizes we are a cold place and it gives us pride in that. you stick your chin into the teeth of it with pride. which offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom You’ve probably read before about the key phrases that greatest leaders say every day But great leaders are also wise when it comes to the opposite strategy: Sometimes the smartest thing to say is nothing at all I’m not referring here simply to the advice your mother might have given you about keeping your mouth shut if you don’t have anything nice to say Instead think of the big moments when people come close to achieving goals accomplishing great things or even just developing good relationships and encouraging people to like them more Sometimes a simple slip of the tongue can set them back and destroy all they’ve worked for It’s the same issue whether we’re talking about negotiations investigations or plain old conversations So in the interest of preventing us from wishing wistfully that our mouths had been on Mute here are 10 times when the sounds of silence are the best sounds of all 1 When the other side in a negotiation starts debating against itself Sometimes people get into a spiral of bad negotiating tactics They wind up outsmarting themselves–perhaps making an offer and then rejecting their own offer because they think you won’t take it Imagine a customer who opens a conversation by saying that he understands you can’t cut the price on your product before asking for some smaller concession–and then maybe even convincing himself that even that’s too much to ask for For a fun extreme example of this in action see this video from The Princess Bride Often your best move in that situation is to keep your mouth shut and simply stay out of their way 2 When you’ve asked a question We all know these people right They ask questions but can’t wait for you to finish so they can offer their own viewpoint Sometimes they don’t even bother waiting and instead try to hurry you along with verbal cues–“uh-huh uh-huh right right right…” When they asked for advice what they really meant was “Let’s fast-forward to the part where I tell you what I think instead” Don’t be like them To paraphrase baseball great Yogi Berra you can observe a lot by watching and you can also learn a lot by listening 3 When the other side misunderstands (and you don’t have a duty to talk) A lawyer once told me about selling a client’s company To make a long story short (lawyers love that phrase) the negotiation went much more smoothly than she’d expected Eventually she realized this was because some whiz-kid MBA on the other side of the table had made a simple math error That led him to overestimate vastly how much money the acquiring company would likely make after the deal was done The lawyer was overcome with apprehension until she realized the right thing to say: nothing at all That way she wouldn’t be breaching her duty not to misrepresent facts to the buyer but she also wouldn’t do anything to scuttle her client’s deal The moral of the story is that you don’t always have an obligation to correct someone else’s mistakes 4 When you don’t have any idea what you’re talking about Silence is awkward As a result people often rush to fill it I used to use this tendency to my advantage when I was a trial attorney taking depositions in civil cases Sometimes I’d ask a witness an open-ended question and even though the witness’s tone of voice suggested he’d finished his answer I’d just continue to wait expectantly as if anybody with half a clue would understand he had to keep it coming Sometimes the witness would keep going and dig himself a bigger hole You never have to fill a silence especially when you don’t have anything useful to fill it with (In those cases it’s true: Everything you say may well in fact be used against you) 5 When you need someone else to get the credit As President Harry S Truman once said you can accomplish just about anything if you don’t care who gets the credit Sometimes that means staying quiet just long enough for someone else to think of your solution and propose it as his or her own 6 When you are bragging as opposed to sharing This one is among the scourges of social media Go on Facebook for example and sometimes it seems as if everyone you know is eating well taking amazing vacations running marathons and enjoying storybook relationships Is all of this about social sharing or social bragging If you find you’re leaning toward the latter with the things you talk about maybe it’s time to be quiet 7 When your comment is more about you than the other person Suppose your co-worker Sally is excited for her plans for the weekend You catch yourself ready to tell her about a better place than what she’s planned or why she should take her trip on another weekend–maybe when the weather is better when the traffic will be less hectic or when she’ll have fewer competing commitments Aw that’s really nice of you–as long as you’re sure your comments are truly intended to improve her experience or offer good advice If there’s a chance you’re commenting out of jealousy or pride however maybe you’d be better off zipping it 8 When you want someone else to grow This is a similar point to when you want someone else to get the credit for a good idea If you have a second grader in your family chances are you could do her homework for her without much effort But what would be the point You want her to learn and grow which means she has to be the one to come to the conclusions on her own The same thing is true in many other circumstances Instead of leaping forward to answer a thoughtful question that you know the answer to sometimes it makes sense to hold back and let others figure it out 9 When you are clearly boring people I admit it I’ve got what’s called “the Irish gift of gab” I enjoy telling stories My wife laughs at how often I seem to wind up telling total strangers the story of how she and I met and got together It’s a good one though You see we’d gone to college together and dated for a while but then broke up… OK I’ll hold off on it for now and that’s the point Most of us can tell when we’re holding court for an audience that simply couldn’t care less In that case cut it short wrap things up and stop talking 10 When you begin a speech I love this example and it’s something I first put into practice when arguing appeals in court Whenever I give a speech I try to start out with a long uncomfortable pause Doing so puts the audience ill at ease for a moment and gets them rooting for you They worry that you’ve lost your notes or that you’re about to keel over from a panic attack That way when you start talking you’ll have at least a few of them on your side happy that at least you haven’t made them witness an embarrassing meltdown (h/t Winston Churchill) Read more from Inccom:How 4 Entrepreneurs Started Up (Really) YoungFiring an EmployeeEven a Bad OneIs Hard to Do Contact us at [email protected] Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer won a bidding war to buy the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday for a cool $2 billion dollars It’s the most expensive team sale in NBA history So how good an owner will Ballmer be Here are the track records of some other executives-turned-sports team owners: Howard Schultz The chairman and CEO of Starbucks built a coffee empire but he didn’t prove to be a good owner of the now-defunct Seattle Supersonics NBA team He ran the franchise more like a business than a sports team and feuded with the city of Seattle over funds for a new stadium Eventually he committed the ultimate sin selling the team to an Oklahoma City ownership group The team now the Thunder moved out of Seattle and fans still haven’t forgiven him Arthur Blank Arthur Blank co-founder of Home Depot purchased the
