If there is such a thing as good leadership, it is to give a good example.
– Ingvar Kamprad
If you know me or you’ve been reading my blog, you know how much I value this concept.
I’ve seen a poor example be the bad leadership to bring down many a company.
If you take a little extra cash out of the register, your employees will feel okay doing so, too. If you speak negatively about your customers, your employees will do the same. Are you a gossip? Expect your employees to become gossips as well.
It doesn’t matter how many inspiring speeches you give about doing the right thing and the amazingness of your company. Your word means nothing if your actions – which are all examples – are poor.
We all lead by example. Make sure yours is a good one.
