Just Enough Words

The Gettysburg address had 267 words. 50 years ago Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for about 16 minutes. How much are just enough to make an impact?

Aiming to explain technicalities and execution? It would require more words to be a manager. However, less words are more for disruption, encouragement, guidance and inspiration.

Talking is far from leadership, the longer you talk the less you lead.

Sadly, people with power usually talk longer than those without. Talking seemingly appears, to the talkers, to amplify power. The longer you talk the more you’re trying to control.

Leadership is releasing.

Who is motivated by feeling controlled? Let people go.
