A couple of years ago, I posted a video on the blog under the title of You are a role model. The video had a lot of great messages in it, but more than anything else, it illustrated something that I repeatedly tell leaders – “You are role models. Whether you want it or not, whether you like it or not, your people are watching you, and your behaviour and actions will determine how they behave and act.” And it really doesn’t matter if it’s at home or at work!
Recently I came across another video that conveyed the same message (and brought a tear to my eye) so I couldn’t resist sharing. Here it is (it is in Thai, but it has English subtitles):
My primary reason for sharing the video with you is to illustrate the importance of being a positive role model in all arenas of your life. But I know there is more than one leadership (and life) lesson to be learned here. What did you get out of this video? Please share by adding to the Comments below.
P.S. In case you were wondering, this is actually an advert for a Thai mobile company. Cool, huh?
