Do as I Do and as I Say

“Model first, teach second.” Dennis C. Kinslaw

Ah, such clarity and simplicity in this quote. What a great way to think about introducing new behaviors you want others to demonstrate. This can be difficult to do during an organizatonal change, but try it anyway. The payoff is grand, including an increased level of respect and perspective others will have of you as a leader. Better yet – you will likely trust yourself more as a leader.
