To tell the truth
Q: Are successful people blunt by nature? In recent weeks, retired NFL star John Riggins has been scathingly critical of his former team, the Washington Redskins. Is his take-no-prisoners rhetoric typical for achievers? Do the tactful accomplish more?
In my view you can convey your message by being both tactful and truthful. Just because you are tactfully communicating, it does not mean you are being dishonest.
Using tact is more about being considerate of the person you are conveying the message to. There is a way to tell the truth with tact, and avoid the consequences that often result when people are overly blunt. I feel if it is used correctly, the same results can be accomplished by using tact to convey messages.
