Lead by Example

The leader gives a license to his or her followers to think and perform in a certain way; so all actions and words must be assessed for their impact on followers, superiors, peers, and those the organization is meant to serve. In the final analysis, the leader must be worthy of the loyalty, confidence, and respect of followers, because they will mimic the leader’s performance.

  • Look at your speech, decisions, actions, and performance from the perspective of others, especially your followers.
  • What do you think they expect in a leader?
  • What do they need in a leader?
  • Have you ever said one thing but done the opposite?
  • Why did you do so?
  • How could you have avoided it?
  • What will you do to avoid it in the future?

I’m never too busy to discuss your needs or those of anyone else you feel may benefit from meeting or talking to me. So feel free to contact me at any time!
