November - Green Sales Sheet

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the
only thing. - Albert Schweitzer

You set an example by looking, acting, and thinking like a leader. Work as
hard, or harder, than your team members. You set a powerful example by
occasionally rolling your sleeves up and getting your hands dirty. Staying
at the rear of the battle is not inspiring and sets a bad example. Leading
the charge says in the most dramatic way, "I’m your leader. Follow me."

Keep your cool. Respond calmly to those big challenges that are
sure to come your way. While you can’t know what specific problem will
come knocking, you can anticipate how you react to it. A calm response
is a strong example of your leadership skills, which will not be lost
on others.

Develop first-rate communication skills. Never sugarcoat a problem
or deliver an unclear directive. Tell it like it is. People are not afraid of the
truth and will readily follow a leader who is direct. When you are honest,
realistic and plain spoken, you’ll avoid misunderstandings and mistakes.
A straightforward communication style is the hallmark of good leadership.
Clarify, prioritize, and lead.
