Great leaders do not merely lead.
They lead by exemplary example, which moves their people into doing the same and to the best of their abilities—the result? Greatness within the organization and greatness among the members.
Influence is not easy to come by, but when one is influenced, it’s hard to get away from it. It could shape one’s life or break it. That is how powerful it is.
When you are faced with great challenges, you do not run away from it. Instead, you are on the front line of the battlefield, showing your people how things get done and as you would expect, they will execute with precision and unity. That is how you shape their lives in some aspect and their professional career in many ways.
There really is no other option, the influence you have on the people you work with and lead can only be measured by the examples you show.
Tell us, do you lead by example? What level of success do you achieve by doing so?
