You can’t just pay attention to what the leader is saying.
What is the leader actually producing?
Are the actions leading to good outcomes or are the actions leading to the contrary? Do the words and actions match?
If you are unsure whether a leader is genuine, just take a hard look at the results that are being produced.
When the leader is saying all the right things and seems sincere, but none of their people are growing or leading better lives, how effective is the leadership?
Leaders should make sure they are making positive impact on people’s lives, growing them and developing them into leaders also. Remember, leaders reproduce what they are, both good and bad.
