Podcast Episode 21: Set the Example

Have you ever wondered what the Army teaches its young leaders? Listen in as Jonathan interviews Shannon McGurk, Lieutenant Colonel, US Army (retired). Shannon shares the lessons he learned from his 20 year career as a Ground Cavalry Officer and China Foreign Area Officer in the U.S. Army.

In Principle 4, Set the Example, learn exactly how powerful your own example can be to those around you. Learn why Army leaders are taught that they can’t ask others to do what they won’t do themselves. What signals are you sending by your example? Is it possible that you may be sabotaging yourself by not knowing the effects of the powerful warning, “I can’t hear what you’re saying because your actions are drowning it out!” The example we set– in appearance, bearing, and, especially in the words we choose to use on a daily basis– shapes our every success and frames our every failure. Listen in to understand more clearly why setting the example is crucial to effective leadership.
