No leader, however great, can long continue unless he wins victories. — Bernard Law Montgomery
High performance requires high commitment. Productivity is measurable. Organizational growth is tangible. Profitability is quantifiable. Leaders who add to them are rewarded and then asked to achieve even more.
Effective leaders understand that the cost of leadership is carrying the responsibility of their team’s success on their shoulders. They are held accountable for their level of commitment to empower and achieve success.
Staying inspired and continuing to grow, “raising our leadership lid”, helps our level of dedication. Great levels of commitment require great levels of discipline. There is a natural barrier to our ability. Growing to expand our knowledge and influence is a necessary part of leadership.
