Six Leadership Tips for Setting the Example

"Setting an example is not the main means of influencing other it is the only means."
-Albert Einstein

In order to be an effective leader, you must be able to influence those under you. Otherwise, there is no action to your leadership abilities. You'll never have the respect of your subordinates if you say one thing and act another. You must set the example, no matter how difficult it may seem. This is how it's done.

  1. Establish a clear vision. Effective leaders know and where they are leading the people who follow them. It's imperative to set a clear vision for where you want to go, both for the organization as a whole and the individuals. If you haven't established a vision for reaching the goals you wish, there is no way to lead effectively.
  2. Provide direction and chip in. If an employee is failing at a certain project, offer your expertise in that area by giving suggestions and direction. An effective leader knows how to get the work done, and sets the example for struggling employees by doing it. Being a leader does not exempt you from the heavy lifting. If an employee is bogged down, happily offer your help. Servant leadership is one of the best examples you can set for your employees.
  3. Maintain communication. Maintaining open lines of communication from the top down is one of the most important rules for effective communication. When the vision is established, leaders must direct their employees in the right direction, and the only way that's possible is through communication. Share ideas across the organization and offer feedback as often as possible.
  4. Listen. Another key component in communication is listening. Communication isn't a one-way road, and listening is half the equation. Effective leadership cannot exist if it is not open to the ideas and suggestions of those it leads. Set the example here by making yourself accessible to employees. Make sure you clarify any questions or concerns when they are brought up to eliminate as much risk for miscommunication as possible.
  5. Command your employees' attention. When those you lead respect you, they will automatically give you their attention. One of the best ways to keep attention is to refrain from unimportant interactions, such as constantly joking or always being away from the office.
  6. Always be visible. Let your employees actually see your work ethic by being visible. There's absolutely no way to set a good example if no one sees what you're doing.

Wishing you continued success,

Organizational Assessment (July 15 – 16, 2015)
Organizations are considered biological organisms that need to continually grow, learn, adapt and innovate. In this regard, organizations should have a better understanding of themselves, their own performance and address their strategic issues and concerns, and ultimately improve their performance. Organizational Assessment is often used as a diagnostic process or starting point for planning and implementing internal changes and/or strategic planning within the organization. It can also be used as a communication tool to dialogue with the organization’s stakeholders, both internal and external. Organizational Assessment is common to all organizations who want to grow in excellence, taking into account that ‘Excellence is never an end in itself.’ This two-day seminar-workshop will introduce the concept of Organizational Assessment to the participants.
