When I read this quote I think of leading by example. Good leaders must lead by example. By walking your talk, you become a person others want to follow. I try not to ask the people I am leading to do something without providing them an example to go by. I believe in rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty. If the people you are leading see that you are not afraid of hard work, they will likely follow suit. Do not expect others to do what you are not willing to do yourself. The best way to earn the respect, trust, and the right to lead others is to lead by example.
