The general mindset of leadership is about changing others. After all, spiritually speaking, we are leading, right? The purpose of our leadership is changing others, right? Are we not supposed to change others?
However, before we can change others we must first change ourselves. It is easy to ask others to do what we are either unwilling to do or have not done yet.
The power of change, however, begins with us. When we make changes in our own lives first, then we are setting an example for others to see why they should change also.
When leaders provide the example, then consistency is the model.
