Words matter - choose wisely


Words are the building blocks of all our oral and written communication; they provide information; they create images in the mind of the listener or reader; they help us to motivate others and they enable us to influence; they have an impact on how we perceive the world around us; they shape our beliefs and values and affect our emotions. The right words are engaging and captivating, but the wrong words can have disastrous consequences. Successful people have a way with words that not only suggests confidence but inspires confidence. In other words, words really do matter!

In this edition of the newsletter, we kick-off an exploration of word power, how to package the words you choose and use, and investigate how the words that others use can tell you so much more than you might think.

“Words are like eggs dropped from great heights; you can no more call them back than ignore the mess they leave when they fall.”

Jodi Picoult - Salem Falls (2001)
