There is nothing more powerful than authenticity. It has always been true, but particularly in our day and age where nothing and no one seem to be what they appear to be. Young people especially have incredible instincts when it comes to sniffing out the authentic. Great leaders don’t lead with words, they lead with action. Example trumps all else when it comes to leadership. Being willing to get in and do what you are asking others to do will always be respected by those you are trying to lead. There is no point telling a child not to smoke if you are a smoker. It doesn’t matter how good your motives are. It doesn’t matter how grand your vision is or how good you are at communicating that vision. How does the old saying go? What you do screams so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
