You Are a Role Model Now Go Inspire Your Employees — 35 Comments

  1. I find that simply being a human as opposed to the face of management goes a long way. Employees want to feel like they can connect with you on a level that isn’t work related too.

  2. You are absolutely right! I remember a client who never showed up to work before 3pm and wondered why his employees who showed up at 8 am treated the job like a joke.

  3. It is so important to be positive. I try to be that way for the kids who are my employees. LOL

  4. I try to stay positive and help any way that I can. Great post!

  5. It is called leading by example. If you want great employees, you have to be hands on. You have to show them that you care. You have to remember that they are watching you…your attitude, the way you do things. Set the example.

  6. I try to stay positive in all aspects of life. Def try to put out a good example for my children.

  7. This is SO true!!! I’m passing it onto my hubby who has more employees than I .

  8. A positive attitude changes everything and it goes a long way down the line. I think its very important to be a good example and not just complain all the time (it really is like the children scenario).

  9. I try to always remind myself I am the first role model my kids will have. I don’t always do what I would want them to but definitely try my hardest and most of the time I do.

  10. It’s more than just inspiring your employees. If you have that positive attitude, everyone sees it. Employees, peers, clients…

  11. I agree, sports models/famous people/etc. are role models like it or not. It’s worth the benefits to embrace that and be as good as you can be, at least in public (morally/ethically speaking).

  12. Even more than employees! As a blogger, you are inspiring the world 🙂

  13. I wish I had some employees! Soon I will (hopefully) be hiring a/some VAs! 🙂

  14. Cute pic and saying….a very so true post.

  15. I wish I had some employees, but I don’t. I am my children’s role model thought and I try to lead by example and be the best I can be. Great post once again.

  16. I do not have employees, but I agree with Kay, there are a lot of bosses out there who should read this!

  17. Do not have any employees but i think a lot of bosses need to take note and learn from this.

  18. This is interesting advice for business owners to keep in mind! – Jenn @ The Rebel Chick

  19. This should be every boss’s mission statement. It would make it so much easier to come to work and be happy if our boss provided a place and an example to be inspired by. Beyond just the every day task, but hope and inspiration to do better. Better work performances would come out of it!

  20. This is a great article at the right time for me, I just started hiring employees in every state, and it is hard to be a leader to all of them.

  21. This is a great quote or commission. We are all leaders in some capacity

  22. I don’t have any employees, but I try to be a good role model anyway.

  23. No employees but I think this is good for any relationship.

  24. I agree so much about adults inspiring children to be the best or worst in themselves. Thanks for sharing.

  25. I’m adding a few of those books to my wish list. Thanks for sharing!

  26. So often we don’t realize the impact we have on others. I like to think that I am an inspiration to others. It’s definitely something to strive toward.

  27. I happened to run into one of my previous students at his job this week! He said I inspired him to be an educator!!!1

  28. Actions show who we are much more than just our words. Excellent reminder that this works in business as well.

  29. I don’t have any employees. However, I have been inspired by bosses before, especially ones that care about the employees and not just a paycheck.

  30. What happens if you don’t have any employees! haha – I hope that I can inspire my students instead!

  31. I don’t have employees (though during the school year, I have student workers.) That said, when I worked for a previous company, I had a boss who did NOT inspire me one bit. I’m so glad to be working in a place where my co-workers inspire every day.

  32. I do not have employees. I hope that my husband and I will inspire our children through our work ethic and by what we have been able to provide them with,

  33. So true, we often inspire those around us without even knowing it! I think it’s a great idea to show a great example in the work place and hope that others will follow!

  34. Employees absolutely will model what they see, and management needs to be willing to jump in the fray and show they’ll work alongside the employees too!

  35. It’s totally true – employees are like children when it comes to following directions and such.

How do these ideas work in your world?
