The following expression is significant: “Every conversation is important. When a specific wording is missed or an inappropriate judgment made, it can temporarily or permanently stunt another person’s potential to grow in leadership.”
If we understood how our words might promote or hinder the leadership potential of another person, would we give more careful thought to what we say?
Solomon reminds us that the power of life and death are in the tongue. With our words we either build up or tear down.
We must not allow anything to influence our words in such a way that it would discourage someone from reaching their leadership potential.
