The Seven Powers of Words
Complaining says stop or improve, but doesn't improve anything. Encouraging points to behaviors or attitudes to continue, but doesn't continue anything.
The danger of talking is it feels like doing.
The biggest waste of words:
It feels good to get something off your chest. But, “off your chest” conversations are pleas for affirmation not expressions of leadership.
Weak leaders run around getting things off their chest.
