You can tell a lot about people by the things they do and say, their behaviours.
The actions observed, the things you see and hear them do, informs you and everyone else, on what they see as important, what values and beliefs they hold and uphold.
You can tell a lot about a leader from the things they do and say, their behaviours.
Do you see your leader tackling the hard to tackle, challenging the status quo, taking the time and effort to question and enquire?
Do you see them leading through support, making others successful, taking time to learn as well as teach?
Do you see your leader taking the easy route, just turning up, too busy to really pay attention, barking orders, taking no time to enquire or to understand?
Do you see them using their authority to control rather than support success, too busy, too ineffective with their own time to learn and teach.
You can't hide forever, people all over know what you are like, the kind of leader you are. Every day you are being judged, the good, the bad and the ugly.
What you do and say matters more than what you think you are or what your title is.
