Being as Well as Doing, the Mark of Quality Leadership

(Part Two)

Everyone wants to rule the world, but no one wants to rule themselves. Without discipline and simple systems, it is difficult to manage the vision of your organization and keep everyone focused and on track for the desired goals. Here are some keys that you may find effective as you are leading your team with excellence.

Discipline is not the punishment for bad behavior. It is the result of good and proper behavior. It is not the repercussion for doing something wrong. Rather, it is the reward for doing something right. However, in order to have discipline we must practice discipline.

In an organization, disciplines are building blocks for a cohesive team. They are demonstrated by leadership and emulated by team members. They establish interpersonal commitment from a team and its leader.

Trust, clarity and accountability are examples of such disciplines. An organization’s cohesiveness is marked by an absence of politics, unnecessary anxiety, and wasted energy. Clarity is key as the team comes to know one another’s strengths and weaknesses. The team holds one another accountable and is committed to making group decisions.

To often, organizations with good intentions to establish order can complicate the way in which it is run. Simple systems are the solution to a smooth and effective operation. The same language can be used across the board so that everyone is on the same page. Respect, honor, and being a brother’s keeper can enhance the culture and draw the positive attention you desire.

Signed agreements regarding what you will do and how you will do it create a system of clear expectations among team members. Sourcing and accountability help measure the adequacy of getting things accomplished and staying on top of the important tasks. The path of going from point A to point B can be easy and pleasurable when processes that are out of date and no longer necessary are removed. For those challenging times that arise – and they will – your simple systems can help maintain the balance while you strategize the unexpected. Those are moments in which you can seize the opportunity to learn and modify.

Through practiced disciplines and simple systems, a leader can go from being ordinary to extraordinary, the mark of quality leadership. You can take your team to a new level of being and doing. The impact that this will have on the health of the team, service to clients, and influence in the community will be remarkable and legendary.

Here’s to the most prosperous season yet! May all your days be merry and bright. It’s a good time to be you!
