Leadership Minute: Eating Your Words

words

Winston Churchill said, “In the course of my life, I have often had to eat my words, and I must confess that I have always found it a wholesome diet.” I know I am not alone when I say that over the years I’ve had plenty of occasions to eat my words. On too many occasions those pesky words have flown out of my mouth unfiltered. As leaders it is important to understand the power of our words and how they can help or hinder us. It is not so much the volume of our words but the quality of them that make the difference. Use them for good. Use them sparingly.
