The feeling you get from positively impacted another person is the essence of what leadership is all about. As a leader, you want your people to focus on the meaning and mission of their work. This will in turn help them develop as individuals and as a group. I can’t think of a time where we needed leaders more than right now.
Those in leadership positions often “talk the talk”; they make promises about how they will lead the business and its employees, but fall short when it comes to taking action. You may assume that you show your team what leadership is all about; but are you actually practicing what you preach? By taking a deep look at your gestures, behaviors, and the response you get from your people, you will discover the truth behind how great of a leader you actually are.
