“Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others;
it is the only means.”
– Albert Einstein
This seems to be a thought-provoking version of the old saying that “Actions speak louder than words.” It also sheds great insight into negotiating for yourself at work.
When a person acts or speaks with calm confidence, that person’s actions and words are respected. When a person acts or speaks based upon knowledge and know-how, that person’s actions and words are looked up to. When a person acts or speaks with concern for all, and not just for herself or himself, that person’s actions and words carry great weight. If you set an example at work, in your actions and words, you will be a person of influence at work. It’s that simple. Einstein had great influence in his work, and that influence continues to this day.
