Leadership Quote: What You Do Speaks So Loudly…

2013 03-31 Action Plan iStock_000019998849XSmallAs it is time for my monthly leadership quote, I am taking a brief pause from the 45 Years of Leadership series.  The series will return next week with Marsh’s Leadership View #2.

This month’s leadership quote: 

What you do speaks so loudly, I can’t hear what you say – Ralph Waldo Emerson 

  • We say we provide a great place to work, do our actions demonstrate this by committing to the growth and development of our staff?
  • We say we want to grow our business, are our actions focused on growth?
  • We say we want to spend more time learning to play the guitar, are we practicing?
  • We say we want to make a difference, are we intentional each day in taking actions that do in fact make a difference?
  • Are we pausing each day, to ask ourselves if our actions are aligned with our words?
