Guard your tongue

 He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity. (Proverbs 21:23)

Sometimes uncomfortable things have to be said at meetings.  However, you should consider first if they can be said in other venues, in other ways, or at other times.  Grandstanding wins few friends and is generally counter-productive.  Also, silence can be very eloquent, and it’s surprising how often other people will say what you wanted to say!
