Setting Standards - by Ravi Patel

 

"The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves." - Ray Kroc

 

Great leaders set high standards for themselves. The growth of McDonald's was in large part due to the quality, efficiency and customer service standards established by Ray Kroc.

 

Entrepreneurs too need to set and live by commendable personal standards for themselves so that they can demonstrate a high level of leadership to inspire their employees. How often have we seen leaders who ask their followers to do one thing while they do something else? How does that provide leadership by example?

 

If an Entrepreneur desires to set high standards of ethics and performance for their companies, they first need to set for themselves high-reaching standards. However, that is not enough! Entrepreneurs need to then adhere to their established standards and demonstrate via actions their commitment to such uplifting principles.

 

Leadership in this area is truly by example. If an Entrepreneur establishes a pattern of behavior that meets his/her lofty standards, then it will be easier to set high standards for the company and employees. It helps to inspire people by actions and then demand high standards of excellence and hold their followers accountable.
