Leadership Minute: Think Twice

think_before_you_speak-300x208

Napoleon Hill said, “Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.” As someone in a place of leadership your words carry a lot of weight. People look to you for good reason. Your ability to influence is heightened. Your words matter. It’s as you think twice before speaking that you ensure that what you are about to say has the outcome you intend. The influence you have as a leader is a privilege. Think twice. Speak once. Plant good seed.

    Excellent post! Words can indeed hurt-or-heal. Wisdom reminds us to be careful what we offer…and what we accept! Thank you Mr. Dickerson!
