The Power of a Well-Timed Word

If you haven't already, you'll soon discover the fantastic power of words. Words can be used as bombs or bouquets. Which would you rather receive at your doorstep? A few words can be forged together and lobbed into the life of another to cause more havoc than a 2-year-old at a tea party. Conversely, words can be handed out like candy to a discouraged teammate. A timely "Thank you" or "I appreciate you" can do more good than a paycheck bonus.

Big-Time Leaders Have Small-Sized Egos

Great leaders are gratified by the achievements of others. All good leaders realize that they themselves never can accomplish all they dream about; others must help carry out their vision. So they invest, encourage, train and enable them to succeed. The best leaders realize there's plenty of success to go around, and they help those around them reach for the stars.
