Words are to a leader what a hammer and saw are to a master carpenter. Tools of the trade.
All carpenters are not equal in skill; neither are all leaders proficient in word power. The masters, the great ones, can be studied to discover their techniques and secrets.
Moses, Socrates, Jesus, Confucius, Buddha, Caesar, Mohammad, Napoleon, Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, FDR, MLK—all were masters of words.
Pursuing the mastery of words is worth all the time, money, and energy you can muster. And what you invest will be repaid with interest compounded.

SHOW NO SLIDE BEFORE ITS TIME By Tom Nixon
Sitting in on a presentation recently, I noticed that the speaker had a habit of advancing to the next slide well before he was ready to speak about it. He was almost finished with the previous topic and had not yet begun to verbally transition to his next point.
Instead of blacking out the screen until he began his next topic he was showing the upcoming visual before it made sense to the audience. I am sure everyone was preoccupied with figuring out where he was going. An unnecessary distraction.
The lesson: Be aware of what you are saying and how it coordinates with what is on the screen. Show no slide before its time.
