I try leading them down the path as opposed to just showing them the path. Many times you can point in the direction you want them to go, but they will wander.

I lead by example. If I'm held accountable then they need to expect to be held accountable too.

Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary?
