Leaders have to do things that others may not have to do, and may not ever see. Leaders have to maintain a level of commitment to an idea, a plan, a process, even a person beyond what many would even consider doing.

  • Leaders commit to the plan (but recognize change is inevitable and important)
  • Leaders commit to the people (but again recognize not every fit is the right fit)
  • Leaders commit to the process (trusting the gut is important but sometimes that’s indigestion)

If you are a leader, the true measure of your success is not getting people to work. It’s not getting people to work hard. It is getting people to work hard together. That takes commitment.”
John C. Maxwell
