I was recently reminded that leading by example is essential to my Avon business or to any business.
I had been talking to all my Leadership Reps about the importance of setting, writing down, and breaking down of goals. My daughter, Amy, asked had I done it. The answer, unfortunately, was “NO”. So how could I truthfully sell them on the importance if I wasn’t doing it myself.
This forced me to take a good look at what I was doing to build my business. Was I truly doing everything I could? The obvious answer was “NO”. So I have been taking a good look at what I am doing and what I am NOT doing.
The quotation on my emails is “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. – Albert Einstein. Although I see it and read it every day, it took one comment from Amy to make me see it in a different light.
My question today is are you “Leading by Example?” Are you doing the same thing over and over and still expecting different results?
Maybe you need a wake-up call like mine to make you review your goals and your course to reach them.
