This is Part 2. If you missed Part 1, be sure to go back and read it.
Commitment means being bound by a course of action to bring about the desired results. It is one of the most powerful personal traits we can aim to achieve.
Our greatest leaders and the most successful business people all share common belief systems – determination, strength of purpose, and commitment.
Being committed to yourself, your goals, your business and your relationships is what raises you above the mediocre, because people who honor their commitments stand out in the crowd.
By honoring your commitments, you keep your promises and stay true to your word. Honoring your commitments also means that you promise to see them through to the very end, come what may.
Not honoring your commitment destroys your credibility, dependability, and trustworthiness.
2. Commitment to Business
It would be impossible to imagine a business leader who doesn’t value commitment as one of their greatest strengths.
Commitment requires courage, strength and perseverance; personal traits you will find in any leadership manual.
Great business leaders not only practice commitment in their own lives, they encourage, promote and reward commitment in their employees.
Committed employees are competent and effective in the workplace as well as being committed to the overall success and vision of the company.
Companies who engender commitment in every facet of their organization raise themselves above the level of their competition by honoring their promises and fulfilling the needs of their customers.
