The Coates Perspective for May 20, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
The Power of an Effective Role Model

I have noticed that people do not always do what you say but they see what you do. For example, this principle is painfully clear at home. It was coach John Wooden who remarked,
 
“Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating...too often fathers neglect it because they get so caught up in making a living they forget to make a life.” John Wooden
 
But this principle is just as true in the workplace. When good role models are in place, everyone is elevated. Theologian Tyron Edwards is correct when he says,
 
People never improve unless they look to some standard or example higher and better than themselves.”
 
So here is the take-a-way for the leader who desires to become a good role model at home and at work. How is it done? What does a leader have to do in order to become a good role model? Here are a few suggestions:

1.     Always keep learning and always keep growing

2.     Always be honest

3.     Always be willing to listen to the dreams of others—and then empower them with the tools that will help them become successful
 
If you need help working through the process consider using the resources at Coates and Associates, Inc. We would consider it an honor to visit with you about developing a process forward.
