TEACHING THROUGH EXAMPLE

If you run a large company and have many managers working under you, then you want them to act in a certain way towards the workers.
How do you get your managers to show leadership and expertise? How do you get them to act the way you want them to?
One way is certainly by acting in the way you expect them to act and showing them a mirror. Here are a few ways that you can achieve this goal.

1. Be on time: If you value time and you want your managers to show the workers that it’s important to be on time — then you have to be on time.
Make sure that you show your leaders and your workers that you value time and that you are always on time for meetings, with memos and with promised activities.

2. Expect excellence: If you expect your leaders and workers to work to the best of their abilities, then you have to as well.
Share your expectations with others and set the bar as high as you can.
You should expect great things from those around you but you have to make sure that your expectations fit with realistic and attainable goals.

3. Keep in open mind: You want your leaders to bring in new ideas and to feel free to share those ideas.
For this, you have to show that you have an open mind and that you’re open to change.
Be a great listener and encourage people with new ideas to bring them to you and to share them with others.
You don’t have to have the attitude that things can’t change in order to keep control of your leadership.

These ideas, and so many others, can help you to attain the goals that you set for the company.

Being an example is really the most important step to cultivating greatness in others.
