Leading by example is so important because people are looking at all times, whether you like it or not. It’s also important for yourself. You need to back up what you say with your actions. For those of you that work for someone, you’ve mostly likely seen this along the way and for those of you that own your own business, hopefully you do this. Leading by example is not an easy thing or most. It takes self-motivation. It takes doing the right thing. It takes someone who doesn’t just bark orders, but shows how he or she wants things done. it especially speaks volumes to those that think hard work equals a great leader. I’m not saying that the leader is always mopping floors. There has to be a time of reflecting, thinking about the future and getting those things done that needs to be done by the leader. This is where delegation comes in. This allows time for working in strengths and staying in those things that allow you to enjoy what you’re doing. I mean, let’s face it. You can’t do everything.
