Leading by example

Here's a story...

A fews years back I worked at an organisation undergoing severe economic downturn. The company offered for employees to take a 20% paycut until it recovered, or 10 employees would lose their jobs. It was not compulsory for employees to take the paycut, but staff would lose jobs if they didn't.

All the senior leaders in the organisation took the paycut and then all staff followed suit.

A year later, our wages had returned to normal and not one job was lost.



Why the contribution is important

Nothing is more powerful than seeing values demonstrated by others, but more specifically managers and leaders.
