Top tips for leading by example include:

2. Act on what staff tell you, or explain why you do not agree with their idea
3. Trust your workforce and delegate important jobs to them
4. Trust fellow senior employees
5. Formulate clear company values/principles
6. Live the company values yourself
7. Place the company first, not your own personal ambition
8. Keep meetings with other senior managers to a minimum
9. Communicate decisions arrived at such meetings to all staff
10. Make sure everyone in the company knows who is responsible for what
