What a difference a word makes.

This week’s post is short ‘n sweet.

During my N.L.P (Neuro Linguistic Programming) coach training some years back, I learnt that “words are a window to our world”. If we change our words, we can also change our world view (and vice versa). Through our example, we can potentially influence the world view of others around us.

One particular leader I have the pleasure of working alongside uses the phrase “Our colleagues” as opposed to “The Staff”. The subtle shift in language sets a tone of collaboration, inclusion and honouring of all.

  • What does your language say about your world view?

  • What do you want to influence? How might your words and actions lead the way?


Go well this week.
