Leading from the front and setting the example are what good leaders do. This is an example of what a leader is. Many times, the leaders subordinates need to see the leader actually take charge and lead from the front. The problem is some use leading from the front as a punch line. Lt Speirs led by example, by doing so this established the trust and confidence we discussed in an earlier discussion board.
