Ryan,

I am in total agreement with accountability. The easiest way I see to be accountable to your subordinates is to lead by example. Nothing irritates me more than to have a “leader” who practices, a “do as I say, not as I do” mentality. I have seen leaders who will write someone up for being two minutes late for a shift one time but they themselves come in five minutes late regularly. This is a recipe for problems and such a leader needs to hold themselves to a higher standard. Great point.
