Consistency of Character

A good leader possesses many qualities but a consistency of character should underpin all that he does. Would you follow a leader who’s words and actions contradict each other on a day-to-day basis? Hell no.

Consistency builds trust.

A leader can’t hop from one side of the fence to the other or confusion and dissatisfaction will soon follow. Imagine the negative emotions you’d feel if the internet advertisement of a car, demonstrating it’s excellent condition, was false.

Don’t expect people to follow if you speak and act inconsistently. Be sure of yourself. Ensure your actions are aligned with what you say. And burn the adage, “Do as I say, not as I do”.
