Power Play: Dream a little before you speak

Power Play: Dream a little before you speak

When you’re in a position of power, have a little whimsy in your head before you open your mouth to speak.

The best Power Players do this because they want to add a little dash of possibility to every challenge they throw out.

Boring speeches about process and procedure don’t do much for the human spirit. Reach for words that motivate and illuminate.

The really good Power Players can even make the most mundane meeting into something inspiring and memorable. Words can be poetry every time you use them.

We’re not talking about delivering a soliloquy written by Shakespeare. But we are talking about choosing words that make people feel better.

Language is living art and the most adept Power Players see it exactly this way. Get to love words and see how they can motivate people to do their best.
