Leadership with heart, mind, and soul

Four Words Every Leader Needs to Use (often)

Added on by Sam Davidson.

There are four short words every leader needs to have command of and use as often as needed:

  • Yes.
  • No.
  • Now.
  • Wait.

Each is unmistakably clear in what it means. When approached with an idea, when analyzing a problem, when planning for the future, these are all words to be deployed as necessary so your team is clear on where it's going and what it's doing. 

And the word "maybe"? That's a stall tactic. You need to be in motion. Ditch that word, please.
