What does this mean?

Post by pdh0224 » Sun Oct 17, 2004 12:18 pm

Dear teacher,

Mr. Reeve led by example, as numerous other awards testified. "In the Gloaming," a movie he directed for HBO in 1997, was nominated for five Emmys. His performance in a remake of Hitchcock's classic "Rear Window" won the Screen Actors Guild Award for best actor in a television movie or miniseries.

Q : What does "led by example" mean? Is it an idiom?

All the best,

It means to guide others by means of your actions, not your words.
