The leader sets the bar for the organization. If you are a leader of an organization then you have the awesome responsibility of establishing the parameters by which your organization will be successful.
My mentor always says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership”. He didn’t make up the saying, but he’s learned in his 70+ years experience how true a statement it is. Are you leading with the idea that you are setting the bar for your organization?
The leader sets the bar in the areas of:
- Vision casting
- Work ethic
- Team spirit
- Completing goals and objectives
- Idea generation
- Energy and enthusiasm
Team members will seldom outperform the bar their leader sets for them. The organization will cease to grow beyond the bar the leader sets for it.
Leaders, how high of a bar have you set for your organization? Did I miss an area?
