Courage. Not in the sense of being brave in the face of danger, but courage to confront poor performance, and hold everyone accountable. My team and I have fun, but they all have learned if you don’t give whats expected, I will be asking why. We all talk about values and standards, but we have to be able to hold everyone accountable to those values. Friends, old timers, and ourselves. If we don’t, we show the lack of courage it takes to truly lead. It’s hard, and constant struggle, you may lose the popularity contest, but in the end your teams will be better because of it.
