Whether a small business or large corporation, the head must act in a forthright, admirable way for the chain of command to follow suit. Same applies to smaller groups of people: the leader sets the tone for what is acceptable and what is not, setting the pace for others to follow.
By pushing yourself to be the very best you can be, you inspire those around you, build trust within your team, and encourage others to lead principled lives.
Great leadership shouldn’t be difficult to come by. Neither should integrity.
