The principle we're discussing
"What the leader values, gets valued."
You may not even realize how much influence you have on your team as their leader so it's important that you model the behavior you want them to emulate.
Why this principle is important and matters to you
You set the standard for your team. When a leader models a behavior, it is often the single most powerful way for the team to do them. Employees really do spend more time watching the boss than most bosses realize. Everything about the way you lead is studied. That means every action you take is important.
