The Golden Rule, With a Twist

The Golden Rule with a Twist

No written word nor spoken plea,
Can teach your team what they should be,
Nor all the books on all the shelves,
It’s what the leader is himself.
– from Wooden on Leadership

The most powerful form of leading is personal example.

It’s a simple idea.

Be the way you want others to be.

Do the kinds of things you want others to do.

If they trust you, your team will begin to act as you act.

It’s really the Golden Rule: do to others what you would want done to do to you.

But to be a leader, there’s a twist:

You go first.

If you want to be a leader, it begins with you.

If you have earned their respect, they will follow.

The team is a direct reflection of its leader.

Want to see what your team will look like tomorrow?

Look in the mirror.

Lead on!
