Guest article – Lead by Example

Book cover

“You win or lose by how you choose.” – Angelique du Toit

All of life is essentially relationship driven.  Leadership is relationship at it’s peak.  Your life experiences have a greater potential to influence people than mere theory or academic knowledge.  People love people who lead by example and not by directive and dictate only.  A person in authority with positional power can demand that change takes place in an individual, either in their attitude or performance.  The subordinate can comply either cheerfully or maliciously.  The authoratitive approach in leadership, however, never guarantees internal change – only compliance.  A leader who has influence and personal power can effect substantial change in another person because there is no demand made, but rather a powerful invitation to embrace the opportunity to walk together and jointly make a positive contribution.
