Leading By Example Facilitates Real Change

leadership mentoring

For those of you who do not know me, I will let you know that we have just entered my favorite time of the year, college football season. As I watched these first few weeks of the new season, it is clear that some of the best results so far are the teams that have a head coach that is leading their teams out front with real passion and commitment. The players feed off the energy of these coaches who run up and down the sidelines engaged in every play and who more importantly have delegated the leadership of their offense and defense to their assistant coaches. In other words, like so many good business leaders the real change and success of these teams is because they have a leader that believes, engages the team around him with delegated leadership and visibly gives 110% in effort to win!

I have written before about the need to be a real, authentic person in order to be a really effective leader. Well there is no way you can be real without really setting the example for all to follow. A real leader is out in front of his/her team. Did you ever wonder why a team could perform so differently with the same players and the only change being a leadership change? Well I have personally witnessed this in three businesses and I can tell you that in order to facilitate the dramatic changes that occurred, it all began with leading the members of the business in a very visible, honest, an energized way that set the belief that we could change and win!

You know we hear it most of our lives, “set a good example.” Well there could not be better advice when it comes to leadership. Strong leadership examples who give their all, energize people who may have given up on winning. Strong leadership examples can dramatically change the results of a less than successful organization. Real leadership often facilitates real change and a future that few can see.
