Leadership

Posted by Mike on April 11th, 2007

I remember one particular health department inspection when I was a store manager for Walgreens. Early that morning, I used the restroom and when I washed my hands, I used the last paper towel.  I was in a hurry to get a few things done before the store opened, so I told myself, “I can fill the towel dispenser later.”  (Procrastination – doesn’t it always get you?)  Shortly after opening, the health inspector showed up. Guess what?  I had a perfect report, except for one warning.  You guessed it!  No paper towels in the men’s restroom.  I failed to be a leader in my store.

Today, I noticed a garbage can blocking a fire exit in the building where I work.  How it got there, I do not know.  I do know where the garbage can belongs.  It took me all of two seconds to move it.  That is leadership. Do what needs to be done, even in the small things.  Don’t put it off or wait for someone else to take care of it.
