“Consistency is the belt that fastens excellence in position. If you don’t do it repeatedly, you’ll not excel in it.”
― Israelmore Ayivor, Let’s go to the Next Level
Leadership is not sexy.
Leadership is seldom glamorous, exciting, or adventurous.
Leadership is mostly about being boringly consistent.
If it is a regular occurrence that people are waiting to see what you will do or how you will react, that is a bad thing.
They ought to know how you will react and what you will do under most circumstances.
Most leaders see themselves as change-agents when in reality that is only a very small part of what they do. Their main responsibility is to faithfully guide the people under their care through the day-in and day-out grind of life.
People have enough thrown at them already. They do not need a leader who is unstable or uncertain. They need a boringly consistent leader who is unwaveringly there for them.
The ONE THING for today: Shields go up quickly and people start heading for the doors when a loose cannon shows up. But a boringly consistent, principle-led leader of integrity…that’s the kind of leader people will gravitate to.
