“Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Do as I say, not as I do.” This may be the directive of a despot or dictator, but not of an authentic leader. You can get people to change behavior through threats and intimidation, but a more effective approach is to embody the change you want to see in others. Have you ever noticed that the most genuine leaders lead by example? They don’t just tell you to act a certain way; they walk the walk, talk the talk and inspire you to do the same.
Do you rely on words OR lead with deeds?
