Value Of Actions Over Words – Leadership Qualities
“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.” ― Harold S. Geneen


Effective people don’t proclaim a lot by words only; their actions speak instead of them. Whoever has become successful in this world is backed up by his effective actions and influences. It doesn’t ever mean that words are useless. The words have given birth to many revolutions. It’s the words which encourage people to take actions but ultimately it is the actions which lead to destination.

So, definitely there is more value of actions over and above words. All the people who are successful in any field are due to their powerful actions. In the absence of actions, there would be no quality leadership nor the growth.

Now the question is what the effective actions are. Effective actions simply mean those actions which lead a person towards his/her destination. If your actions are not helping you to reach your destination, it will not be considered as an effective action. And when we are talking about leadership skills, there’s no doubt the effective actions which make a leader a great one.

Role of Actions in Leadership

Leadership is something which should not be practiced so much in words. Effective leadership should get reflected in the attitude and in the actions of the leader.

John Quincy Adams, in one of his quotes, said,

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

It’s the actions along with the words which inspire people more than only words.

As per Harold S. Geneen,

“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.”


Successful people let their actions talk instead of their words. There are effective actions behind all the successful people. Especially, in the case of leadership, it’s the actions which influence people more than only words. Words inspire people to take actions but ultimately it’s the actions which lead to the destination.
