Lead By Example

Does this cartoon ring true of your work environment? Does it ring true of you?

I have experienced some of this during my career and I have to tell you, it drives me crazy!

This type of attitude is contagious. It can infect an entire organization.

If you work at a place like this, you can make a difference. Even if you are not in a position of leadership by title, you are still a leader. With persistence and perseverance, if you continually do what you say you are going to do, others will start to take notice. Colossians 3:23 tells us, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men." One way to live this verse out is to fulfill your commitments.

If you are the leader of an organization and this is taking place, it is probably because you do this yourself. Remember, people will do what you do rather than what you say. Lead by example!
