When we say, Speak with Aloha, we mean, Get the values of Aloha into your language and all your communications. Talk the talk.
This alpha Index will point you toward the articles which explain the lexicon used here on Managing with Aloha, within our Language of Intention:
From our 9 Key Concepts:
Key 5. LANGUAGE OF INTENTION:
Language, vocabulary, and conversation combine as our primary tools in business communications, just as they do in our lives: What we speak is fifty times more important than what we read or write. The need for CLEAR, intentional, reliable and responsive communication is critical in thriving businesses — and in learning cultures, for we learn an extraordinary amount from other people. Drive communication of the right cultural messages, and you drive mission momentum and worthwhile energies. Communication will factor into every single value in some way as its primary enabler. The Managing with Aloha language of intention is inclusive, and is therefore defined as the “Language of We” with the value of KĀKOU as guiding light.

This is intended to be an identifier index, linking you to the suggested first read — the initial article within which a concept was born, or one where it had truly gelled within the morphology of our lexicon.
If you are new to the site and to the Ho‘ohana Community of Managing with Aloha practitioners, I highly recommend the New Here? Resource Page as a place to start: It briefly site-maps how we navigate here, and offers several suggested reading paths.
This page is a work-in-progress, however it is not intended to be a comprehensive index of all articles: That is how the Archives, blog categories and tags should be used (and if all else fails, the search box in the right-side column). The Glossary is offered to quickly define on our Hawaiian labeling for you.
I welcome your feedback: If you have a suggestion for this, or any of the Resource Pages listed in the right-side column of the blog, please let me know. Scroll to the comment boxes available after the footer on this posting: Managing with Aloha’s Lexicon Morphology.
