I discovered my love for words later in my life. I discovered this through the writing of Margaret Visser in her Massey Lectures and especially through the book “Beyond Fate” which is based upon those lectures. What I appreciate the most is the way she gets to the heart of the matter by examining the root and history of different words, such as “fate”.
Leaders understand the power of words and the impact for positive and negative upon their teams. Using words poorly can undermine your team quite unintentionally. Using them wisely will bring you to the heart of matter in a constructive way.
“Different situations and different companions demand different levels of vocabulary and tone, but there are some words that hold power, no matter what the situation..” – Jayson Demers, Entrepreneur
