#706: Leading by Example: Exemplifying the Behavior You Want to See in Others

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: Learn why it is critical to exemplify the behaviors that reinforce leadership traits and competencies for others to follow.

The attributes that we want to see in other leaders should be behaviors that you, as leaders, demonstrate to those around you so that they are inspired and motivated to exemplify the traits they see you exhibiting. Using the acronym “ICRELIEF” as a conceptual framework, this workshop discusses various leadership concepts appropriate for a leadership position within an organization. How an individual reacts to choices, change, commitment, creativity, control, confidence, responsibility, enthusiasm, leadership, investment, expectant attitude and humor, largely determines whether you have what it takes to lead by example. This workshop will show you how to:

  • Evaluate your leadership behavior.
  • Create an environment for others to lead by example in your leadership behaviors.
  • Apply these leadership behaviors to both your personal and professional lives.
  • Understand the importance of a leader’s behavior as a prime influencer of those they manage and lead.
  • Apply leadership behaviors in the workplace.
