Trust actions, not words

We promise to be home by 6:30, our kids say they will clean their rooms, and our co-workers commit to getting things done on time. Promises matter.

When words match actions, trusting relationships develop. Leaders pay attention to what people do. Actions hold more weight than promises; even when we want to believe the words.

Rewarding positive behaviors and holding people accountable are leadership traits.
