SAY WHAT YOU MEAN,
AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY
Becoming a leader is about building trust with people. , “It’s the ability to foretell what will happen tomorrow, next month, and next year—and to explain afterward why it did not happen.”
Leaders find themselves under tremendous pressure. Maybe that’s why some of them crack under it and tell people what they want to hear rather than what the Leader really believe.
And those who do crack create a negative reputation that all politicians have to labor under.
If you want to develop trust with others, you must be more than competent. You must also be credible and consistent. The way to achieve those qualities is to make sure that what you say, what you do, and what you say you do all match. If you do that, the people who work with you will know they can depend on you.
ACCOUNTABILITY.TEAM: Setting and maintaining high Standards within the Team. (Q4.8).
Team Accountability is based upon the same principle. Here, the Q applies the Team’s objective measures of performance to the Members by setting high Standards and maintaining them through Enforcement and Consequence. Teams, just like men, have Blind Spots—areas that they cannot protect without help. Teams, just like men, suffer from the Flux—the emotional peaks and valleys that periodically appear in our lives. Teams, just like men, are always in danger of becoming in-Effective unless they have strong Guardrails in place.
ASK THOSE WHO KNOW YOU BEST IF YOUR WORDS AND ACTIONS CONSISTENTLY MATCH.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
1 Peter 2:17
Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lordyour God is giving you
“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.”
“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
