Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“Either do it or don’t do it. No more wishy-washy, half-hearted attempts. Either say ‘no’ to achievement or dig in and get to the bottom of the persistent incongruence between what you say and what you do.” Dan Kennedy

Today’s thought is convicting on a number of levels, but the idea of consistency and compatibility between words and actions in our leadership cannot be overstated.

Leaders cannot afford to approach decision-making with a half-hearted hope that it may or may not be the right decision.

Goals must be set with a confident assurance that the direction established will achieve the intended results.

Four ideas are portrayed when leaders dig in and work to achieve success: 1) Hope is instilled in followers, 2) A stronger morale drives the tasks in order to get the job done, 3) Doubt is eliminated, and 4) Credibility for future development is created.

Let us lead with such focus in mind and dig in until we achieve the task.
