Leadership is an important bedrock of any institution. Whether it be a family, business organization or nation, the prosperity of an institution is tied to the quality of leadership it possesses. Thus, having the right kind of leadership in an institution is top priority for success.
In our opening text, we see a testimonial given by God about Abraham, which alludes to his style of leadership. He was praised for his ability to command his household after himself in doing the will of God. This is leadership at its best; the ability to inspire and lead others to act in a way that one has fully exemplified.
Leading by example involves setting a positive example for others to follow. It is modeling the behavior that you intend to see in others, and thus creating a culture of excellence that inspires people to be what you want them to be.
When you lead by example, you set the tone for the people you lead, making them see that it is possible to become or do what is required of them. In return, leading by example earns you the trust and respect of those you lead, making it easier to command their compliance.
Thus, in your quest to lead your team, family, or organization to success, prioritize being an exemplary leader, as this is one of the fastest ways to create a sense of shared purpose and motivate your team for success.
