Those who use The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® more frequently are seen by others as better leaders. For example:

  • They’re more effective in meeting job-related demands.
  • They’re more successful in representing their units to upper management.
  • They create higher-performing teams.
  • They foster renewed loyalty and commitment.
  • They increase motivational levels and willingness to work hard.
  • They promote higher levels of involvement in schools.
  • They enlarge the size of their congregations.
  • They raise more money and expand gift-giving levels.
  • They extend the range of their agency’s services.
  • They reduce absenteeism, turnover, and dropout rates.
  • They possess high degrees of personal credibility.

In addition, people working with leaders who demonstrate The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® are significantly more satisfied with the actions and strategies of their leaders, and they feel more committed, excited, energized, influential, and powerful. In other words, the more people engage in the practices of exemplary leaders, the more likely it is that they’ll have a positive influence on others in the organization.
