Dads as Leaders

The environment that leaders create is directly related to productivity and overall employee satisfaction. Good leaders empower, inspire, and create win-wins. Employees thrive while the organization benefits.

Tone can be empowering, enthusiastic, trusting…hopeful. When it is, we get inspired to do great things, to be cooperative, to be the best we can be.

In a similar way, the tone we set as Dads, greatly impacts the success and well being of our children.

As parents, we are leaders and children will react to parental leaders much in the same way that adults will react to organizational leaders.

As a result, parents really can influence the amount of cooperation they get from children from managing our own behavior first!

This turns things on it’s head. To realize that my leadership so directly influenced the behavior of my kids came as a bit of a surprise to me.

But the tone we set at home is where it all begins.
