Speak With Your Actions

Actions speak louder than words! While it might be a cliché, it is no where more true than for Entrepreneurs as they build their companies.

Generally when the company is just starting, Entrepreneurs show great leadership when they roll up their sleeves and are willing to put in the effort that they demand of their employees. As companies grow Entrepreneurs sometimes say one thing and do something else.

Entrepreneurs need to ask themselves certain type of questions as they become successful:

  • Am I still putting the effort that I am asking of my employees?
  • Do I watch what I spend while I announce cost reduction programs?
  • What am I am doing to improve the company when I am preaching on continuous improvement in my organization?
  • Am I cutting corners while I demand quality from my employees?
  • Do I exhibit what it takes to provide superior customer service when demanding the same from employees?

Answers to these types of questions will determine if your actions match your words. If not, you should make sure they do!

Matching Thoughts with Action

Many people dream up big ideas and constantly broadcast their thoughts. Very few people put their thoughts into actions.

Actions represent visible expressions of your thoughts. Make sure they are in sync.

Entrepreneurs are in the category of people who actually go about realizing their dreams by building on their ideas and actually making them work. They launch companies and develop and sell their products and services, all started by their thoughts

But, they need to do that as business leaders too when dealing with their stakeholders. Match what you promise your stakeholders with specific action. If you ask your employees to do something, you should too should be setting an example in that regard. Don’t expect people to blindly take your word for it if you do not actually do something concrete in that aspect.

As they say, actions speak louder than words – they actually do!
