The truth is that when you are in a management position you are leading by example whether you like it or not.
Your team members look to you for guidance and advice every step of the way, and the example you set is crucial to how your team will respond to you. Something to think about is what happens to your team when its leader chooses not to lead by example. An example could be a manager who demands harder work and longer hours from his employees but then leaves the office early and takes vacation.
Workers become deflated, their drive will be lost and they will not have the desire to push towards your goals and in your direction. Leaders who lead by example choose to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason.
