Whispering is a natural and common way for people to communicate in certain situations. Whether it’s sharing a secret or trying to avoid being overheard, whispering is often the preferred method of communication. However, whispering between board members can give off the impression that they are up to no good.
Whispering creates a sense of secrecy.
When people whisper, it’s obvious they don’t want others to hear what they’re saying. This can give the impression board members are discussing something that they shouldn’t be, or they are intentionally trying to keep information from owners.
Whispering can create undeserved suspicion.
This can lead owners to assume that the board is trying to hide something or is engaged in some sort of illicit activity.
Whispering can also create a sense of unease or discomfort for others.
When board members whisper, it is difficult for owners to gauge their emotions or intentions, which can make them feel uneasy or suspicious. This can be particularly true in situations where there is already a sense of tension or mistrust.
Whispering can also be perceived as sneaky or underhanded.
When board members whisper, it can give off the impression that they are trying to be covert or are engaged in some sort of deception.
In conclusion, whispering can make boards look like they are up to no good because it creates a sense of secrecy, suspicion, unease, and sneakiness. While whispering is a natural and common way for people to communicate, it’s important to be mindful of how it may be perceived by owners.
Board members should save confidential conversations for a private setting. Many owners are distrustful already and board members whispering at the pool, gym, party or lobby just reinforces that impression.
