“If your people aren’t performing up to their best potential, maybe it’s time for you to take a look in the mirror,” is the quote to lead off an article I found at Business Week.

Most of the time all you hear about it is hiring the right employees, retaining superstar workers, or maintaining a good working environment.  Maybe there is something more to finding productivity with in your workplace.  Maybe its you!

Why you should lead by example   

Take a long look in the mirror and make sure what your employees are seeing is what you want them to be doing.  Without the executives at the top setting the example, it won’t matter how great you think your employees are.  What they see is what they will do.
