Set the Example
Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)

Kouzes and Posner in their book, Encouraging the Heart, state,
“Every leader, in fact every person, in an organization has to take the initiative to recognize individual contributions, celebrate team accomplishments and create an atmosphere of confidence and support”.

The foundation of leadership is choosing to activate and invigorate our team(s) and team members.  Everyone is a leader, or should be.  Through efforts to excite, enthuse, arouse and engage each other, the ability to work effectively together is enhanced.  Leaderful people set the example for others.  They practice what they preach; if they want an invigorated team, they begin by being invigorated themselves.
