The power of leading by example - There are many ways leaders can establish trust and increase their influence. Setting the example by modeling expected behavior is one of those actions. Leader behaviors that align with their personal and organizational values wield a powerful tool that amplifies their influence. It is important for leaders to listen for several reasons. First, it sets a good example for others. Second, they receive valuable feedback about how their example is establishing the desired outcome or if they need to tweak some things to better align with professed values. Learning demonstrates the importance of learning to those following the leader. Learning also provides the leader better and greater knowledge and skills to become an even better leader. A leader's example becomes the vehicle for increased trust and influence with others by living the values of the organization, listening to feedback, and learning more.
