Company leaders must give direction and orders, but it’s also their job to set an example for work ethic. According to Jeffrey Hayzlett, CEO of The Hayzlett Group, this means showing that you’re willing to get your hands dirty and prepared to do grunt work when necessary to reach an important goal.  

Hayzlett writes about this leadership strategy in his latest book Think Big Act Bigger.

In this Google Hangout, he gives a primer on why it’s important to develop a ‘servant mentality’ and how it works to motivate staff.
