Leaders are under constant observation. Our actions are always more powerful than our words. It can be frustrating to us when those we lead do not act on the things that we ask them to. They tend to wait until they see us or someone else have success in a new area, before they will take action themselves. Therefore, if you want to accelerate results, make something happen before you ask the team to do it themselves. Observation is a better motivator, than is a hypothetical strategy.
