Lead by Example

When you see leadership quotes and inspirational sayings, do they make you pause for a moment to think, or do you pass on by? Do you think about who is making these statements and if there are any truths to back them up?

Lead by example is something I think we have all heard for decades. I know I was told this over and over, it seems. I believe I have even said these words many times in many different places.

“The phrase lead by example was derived from the famous quote by Albert Schweitzer. His original quote was -“The three most important ways to lead people are: by example… by example… by example… ” A leader always inspires the world to move in the right direction.” Many others have attached different words, phrases, and expressions to get this point across.

What leadership quote or inspirational saying is one of your favorites? Maybe you have one of your own you want to share? One of my former bosses had two favorite letters he liked to hear. O and K, he would ask you to do something, and your response should include his favorite letters. Thank you, Mr. Denman, for your humor!
