This famous quote will hit home to many business owners and managers.

We are living in the midst of a fourth industrial revolution and business continues to change and adapt to leverage new technology and ideas. Companies and business leader who are able to predict and efficiently embrace and exploit change will come out better than they were before.

The key message in this quote is that it is far better to seek out change then to have circumstances force you to change. A major part of creating positive change is having a conscious leader who is aware of the state of his business as well as the conditions in the surrounding markets.

Being a conscious leader means being an available leader, not only being open to different perspectives but actively seeking them out and applying them. These perspectives should come not only from in-house but also from outside sources with different goals and mindsets.

Why is leading by example such an important part of being an effective leader?

The truth is that when you are in a management position you are leading by example whether you like it or not.

Your team members look to you for guidance and advice every step of the way, and the example you set is crucial to how your team will respond to you. Something to think about is what happens to your team when its leader chooses not to lead by example. An example could be a manager who demands harder work and longer hours from his employees but then leaves the office early and takes vacation.

Workers become deflated, their drive will be lost and they will not have the desire to push towards your goals and in your direction. Leaders who lead by example choose to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason.
