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.
