Why Leaders Don’t Need To Use Words To Be Effective

Few examples

  • There may be a situation where your team needs more training on a skill they’re not conquering. Instead of everyone hanging their heads in quiet “shame,” you can use eye contact and hand motions (no words) to communicate that this topic must be focused on tomorrow at meeting time.
  • Another example of this is during a brainstorming session where you’re trying to visualize the flow of ideas and passions or searching for words that relate to each other for a storytelling drive.
