They attended to customers with some air of perfection apparently to demonstrate to their staff how to do banking the correct way. And the magic caught on rapidly as many of their peers quickly jumped in and replicated the same customer service modelling. The leadership principle embedded in that demonstration is simple enough: rather than tell your subordinates what to do, you would achieve faster and better results by just showing them how to do it. This is also buoyed by another leadership theory that children do what they watch you do, and not what you tell them to do.
Could this be the leadership principle that is being demonstrated in these spectacular pictures of the Inspector General of Police (IG) -
In a striking show of service delivery, the IG was yesterday seen controlling traffic at the not-so-busy
The IG, according to a source, was passing through the junction, which is not too far from the Police Headquarters and found it unmanned, and decided to stop and control vehicular traffic. The junction, on a work day, is usually very busy and often creates a near traffic snarl.
The gesture by the IG may not be unconnected with the wanting to demonstrate that he is a dutiful public servant, in accordance with the crusade of the "True Nigerian" group, led by the coordinator, Zakky Azzazy, the popular musician.
The group had staged a rally on the need to be a true Nigerian in every aspect of life. Still in the show of performing strange and lowly tasks, the IG had also visited
According to the Force Spokesperson, Mr. Frank Mba, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (AC), it was the first time a serving IG would perform such duties.
He said: "It was rare and spectacular for the IG Abubakar to fully dress in
"But for Abubakar, it is a case of leadership by example, and perhaps, a direct way of reminding the junior ranks and the public that there is dignity in labour."
And if President
