People do what people see, so it becomes particularly important for leaders to be a good example for others to follow.

Leaders of any team or organization, be it big or small, are accountable for the results they deliver. Attracting and retaining top talent is vital to making progress here but it isn’t easily accomplished.
There is a difference between those who start a business, and those who grow a business. For many, the dream of entrepreneurship is born while in the throngs of employment for someone else; doing work they love while wanting greater autonomy and potential for greater pay.
