  • Leaders are prominent figures and to some degree represent the organization/company they are associated with. As such, their behaviors and attitudes may partially determine the organization’s image. 
  • “Subordinates” often internalize the behaviors and attitudes of leaders. 
  • To avoid triggering a negative spiral, leaders need to lead by example. 
  • Leading by example has intrinsic value: a person who knows they are functioning as a positive example to others may adopt a positive self-image and feel satisfied.
