Rising Above the Rest: How Leading by Example Drives Success 

Being a leader isn’t reserved for company presidents and CEO’s.  From time to time, we are all leaders, whether it be leading a family, a few co-workers, or even friends while out hiking.

To win the support of others you need to lead by example.  Align your actions with your words and be the kind of person others aspire to follow. When you act in a manner inconsistent with your statements, trust is eroded, significantly impacting your ability to effectively lead others.  Let’s explore ten ways to lead by example and inspire greatness in others.

  1. Embrace Responsibility: Avoid playing the blame game, as it undermines your credibility and hinders real growth. Leading by example means taking ownership of your actions and decisions, encouraging others to do the same, fostering a culture of accountability. 
  2. Embody Honesty: Strive for transparency and truthfulness in all your dealings. Dishonesty affects everyone involved and can lead to negative consequences. Demonstrate that honesty is indeed the best policy, thereby fostering a culture of trust and integrity. 
  3. Display Courage: In times of crisis, don’t retreat, step forward and tackle challenges head-on. Leading by example requires taking calculated risks that showcase your commitment to a greater purpose. This courage will inspire others to embrace challenges with determination and resilience. 
  4. Embrace Failure: Acknowledge failures as steppingstones to success rather than as insurmountable setbacks. When you accept failure as part of the growth process, it creates an environment where others feel comfortable taking risks and pushing their limits. 
  5. Demonstrate Persistence: Persevere in the face of obstacles and setbacks. Show your team that hurdles don't define the organization, and you are willing to go above and beyond to achieve success. This attitude will motivate others to approach challenges with the same tenacity. 
  6. Offer Solutions: Shift the focus from dwelling on problems to actively seeking solutions. As a leader, be the first to present potential fixes and encourage others to contribute their ideas. This approach fosters a culture of innovation and problem-solving. 
  7. Cultivate Active Listening: Listen attentively to others, ask questions, and seek to understand their perspectives. By doing so, you open the door to valuable insights and create an environment that encourages open and healthy dialogue.
  8. Delegate Wisely: Encourage a culture of empowerment by delegating responsibilities liberally. Allow individuals to focus on their strengths, enabling them to excel in their roles and contribute effectively to overall success.
  9. Prioritize Well-being: Lead by example when it comes to self-care. Ensure you strike a healthy balance between work and personal life, exercise regularly, and take breaks when needed. A well-balanced leader sets the tone for others to realize the importance of being mentally and physically fit. 
  10. Roll Up Your Sleeves: Just like historical leaders who led their troops into battle, be actively involved in the day-to-day operations. By being hands-on, you show your dedication and commitment, inspiring greatness in others.

By implementing these ten principles, you can inspire and motivate others to reach new heights of success, fostering a culture of trust, accountability, and innovation. 


While many people have taken one or more of the personality assessments this one is based on Buyology (why people buy) as opposed to psychology.  Even if your profession is not sales, every day we are selling our ideas or influence to others.  Wouldn’t it be valuable to better understand a patient, the other people involved at the negotiation table, your spouse and kids, or your co-workers?
