Leadership commitment challenges has a different context here than it does at Lane8.org (today).
The context here is how you lead after the honeymoon effect wears off. There’s always excitement and high hopes when things are new and shiny. We easily rise to the occasion; whether it’s a promotion, a new initiative being rolled out, a corporate merger that is supposed to enhance both cultures into a better, and unified, one.
But eventually and predictably, things are harder and take longer than estimated.
When we grow weary, and the people we lead grow weary, how do we continue to show up with a Day One enthusiasm?
Of course it’s challenging to sustain Day One energy, focus, creativity, and excitement over the long haul (a lifetime?).
Yet this is the essence of great leadership.
And the ability to excite, inspire, and motivate others as if it’s Day One, every day.
