From Idioms to Education

June 22, 2017

“Actions Speak Louder Than Words”

This idiom has a great application to the world of education and leadership.  People will believe and trust in what you as the leader do rather than what you say.  A leader can begin to fool people with constant rhetoric and little follow through.  Time and broken promises will eventually reveal this leader as ineffective.  A school is a place of action.  A positive school culture is built where people know that what the leader says is true and is evidenced by what he /she does.  Telling people what they want to hear just to be popular and well liked is a recipe for failure.
