Your Leadership Reflection

• June 16th, 2014

Col. Christopher P. Levy reminds us that every organization reflects the personality of the leader. Thus it is critical for a leader to set a good example for the team to follow. Setting an example as a leader has more power over the course of an organization than the words a leader says. The common saying, “Actions speak louder than words”, is the basis of good leadership. Your team will reflect your example. Make sure your image is one you want to see looking back at you from the mirror of your organization.
