The Three Commitments of Leadership

What defines a great leader? Simple: they commit to clarity, stability and rhythm. Where? Everywhere? How? There are many ways, but they always provide the same focus. Clarity: Everyone knows the important information and why it matters. Stability: Everyone has the resources they need and trusts their team. Rhythm: The life is predictable and interactive every day.

Whether you’re dealing with a crisis or a good day, the three commitments are what you pay attention to so people love working with you. When you practice the three commitments, people will notice because the new realities everyone wants to see happen. When people realize how easy it is, they will lead when it’s their turn to step up. Everyone can lead; all of us can be better leaders; the great ones make three commitments.
