What Is Real Leadership?

Do You Know The Meaning of Real Leadership?








The True Meaning of Real Leadership is Leading by Example





Simply put, leadership is all about leading by example….that’s it.




Leaders lead by example, whether they intend to or not.








What example did you set today?





When you lead by example, you engage your people to follow your vision . . . not by words, but by action.  




Think leading by example is only for top management?




Think again.




Whatever your position in your organization, the way you do your job . . . and the attitude with which you do it . . .determines the impact that you have.




“You don’t need to have a big-shot job to leave your mark in this world. All is takes is a warm smile, an upbeat attitude and a kind heart.”




That’s the power of a living example.




It can make those around you “step up their game,” . . . sometimes long after you are gone.




Through your words, actions and deeds, you set the foundation for building an environment of trust and respect. 




Trust is the key to both managing people and building a high performance company.




It is the foundation on which relationships are built.








Here are the four ingredients for real leadership that leaders can generate and sustain trust:




1. Constancy.

  • Whatever surprises leaders themselves may face, they don’t create any for the group.
  • Leaders stay the course.




2. Congruity.

  • Leaders walk their talk.
  • In true leaders, there is no gap between the theories they espouse and the life they practice.





3. Reliability.

  • Leaders are there when it counts; they are ready to support their co-workers in the moments that matter.





4. Integrity.

  • Leaders honor their commitments and promises.
  • The ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust is not only vital to our personal and interpersonal well-being, it is the key leadership competency of the new global economy.

    Hi Joan,

    Leaders make a beeline for goals. No stopping. No going side to side, no wavering. Just a straight course, and their most ardent followers step behind in toe. Lead by example. Lead by being bold. Lead by being definite in your purpose. Power advice here.

    Leaders lead by remaining honest. By telling the truth. By living with integrity. Truth telling is a quick and easy way to become a leader. Few people do it most of the time. Maintain integrity and you WILL stand out as a bright, shining leader, who attracts and army of eager followers.

    Thanks Joan!
