Leaders are more powerful role models when they learn than when they teach. (Rosabeth Moss Kantor)

Think about a leader whom you admire.

What have you learned from the lessons they’ve shared?

How have these lessons affected your own leadership style?

As a leader, you’re a role model for your team. Your actions communicate the organization’s values and what’s important in a leader.

Your team learns when you:

  • Demonstrate openness to differing points of view.
  • Work through setbacks and challenges.
  • Respond positively to feedback.
  • Manage conflict constructively.
  • Flex your leadership style.

Great leaders become great role models when they’re open to personal learning.

To expand your own learning, here are a few questions you might ask after you’ve faced a challenging situation:

  • What went well?
  • What could I have done differently?
  • What did I learn about the team?
  • What did I learn about myself?
  • What 1 or 2 lessons could benefit the team?

Become a learner whom others want to follow, and you’ll enhance your leadership effectiveness.
