No single action as a leader has a greater impact in influencing the behavior of others than your own behaviors. While the old saying, “What interests my boss, fascinates me” may be true, the process only “runs” as long as it has fuel.

In other words, your passing interest in a process as a leader will result in an equally limited fascination by your team. In order to truly motivate, lead, and create a sustainable support system around an idea, process or way of work is to live and breathe the exact same interest that you expect from your team day in and day out.
