Lead By Example In Personal Development For More Than One Reason

In the Seven Leadership Practices of PerformanceAdvantage™ we stress the importance of each direct report having personal development goals. Leading by example here provides two benefits: you become a better leader and your direct reports see the value of personal development.

Recent Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) studies have shown a strong correlation between the effectiveness of leaders and the extent to which they exercise; even if exercise requires more time away from work.

Along with the traditional ways of working out at a gym, at home, at a club, more simple steps spread throughout the day can yield great results.  Try parking farther from the building, taking the stairs instead of an elevator, using a Swiss ball for a chair to work your core.

Empower your direct reports to hold down the fort while you break for a real exercise, and demonstrate the benefits of personal development on personal effectiveness.
