The Power of Words - How You Say Something Cannot Be Taken Lightly
We hosted a leadership conference here at BHS yesterday with over 300 freshmen from 23 local high schools. The keynote speaker was Ed Gerety, a motivational speaker who has written a great book for high school students titled - Combinations - Opening The Door To Student Leadership.
Prior to the start of the program, the video above was shown. It was a great reminder that I need to spend more time on the words I use when delivering messages in both my professional and personal life. Sometimes great motives can be derailed by a poorly delivered message. However, when we take the time to carefully consider our words, we can greatly enhance our chances for success.
The final words in the video are ones we all need to embrace - "Change your words, change your world."
