Words Have an Impact

Have you noticed that most sports have sayings that only a fan would understand?

“The more I sweat in practice, the less I bleed in battle.”
“Refuse to lose.”
“Train hard. Win easy.”
“Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”
“You may be strong but we are stronger.”

During this season of COVID-19, we have introduced terms and phrases that are unique to this time:

“Shelter in place”
“Stay home”
“New normal”
“Essential workers”

As Leaders, during this unprecedented time, our words can make a difference. What do our words convey? Are our words of encouragement and hope? Words can inspire, motivate, and comfort our Teams during this time. The words we chose have an impact. We decide if that impact is positive.
