How committed do you need to be

How committed do you have to be?

Commitment often plays center-stage in our lives. Whether we are trying to lose weight, get in shape, get a promotion, make more money or achieve objectives, we often think in terms of being committed to the cause.

If we want to achieve an objective we know “we have to be committed.” When our friends and colleagues give us advice they often accuse us of not being committed enough, and they tell us to be “more committed.” And, when we fall short in our desired outcomes, we often beat ourselves up and feel guilty about the fact that we are simply “not committed enough”

On the other hand, some of us take commitment to the extreme opposite. We are so obsessed with carrying out our commitment that we often act with extreme intensity and drive ourselves to serious stress. We plan our every action, measure our every milestone or intake, announce our every achievement and fall apart with every setback. Our friends and colleagues often look at us with worry. They regard us as obsessive and fanatics and their advice is often to lighten up, chill or simply “stop taking your commitment so seriously!”

So, the question is: “How committed do we need to be to succeed?”

Leadership Tip of the Week

Give up excuses!

Excuses and blame are often legitimate, valid and even justified. However, they don’t make a difference. In fact, they make you smaller than your problems and challenges.

If you want to be more powerful and bigger than your circumstances and challenges give up excuses.

Instead, be honest about the way things are and engage in powerful conversations that make a difference about how to fix the situation or find alternative routes to fulfill your commitment.

Ask others for help and tap into the vast network of friends and resources you have around you, that often you avoid or ignore.

Remember, if you don’t know how to fulfill your goal, it doesn’t mean you won’t or can’t do it.

It only means you haven’t figured it out yet.

What others say about working with Gershon Mader & Quantum Performance

Francois Locoh-Donou

I engaged Gershon in to help raise the performance of the EMEA region at Ciena shortly after the acquisition of Nortel’s MEN division.

Our challenge was to integrate two organizations with different cultures and create a positive, cohesive mindset whilst dealing with complex workforce reductions across multiple European countries.

Gershon worked with us for over a year. The first impact of Gershon’s work was on my leadership team.

Gershon Mader’s executive coaching has been essential in my career advancement in a highly competitive industry and marketplace.

He astutely mentored me in identifying key components to achieving goals and success; in crafting near and long term business and negotiating strategies; and perhaps most importantly, challenging me be my authentic self and understand what truly motivated me to achieve success.

In taking up my role, I was faced with both a challenge and the opportunity of having a new leadership team… many of my colleagues had not worked together, were located in different parts of the world and were very focused on their individual areas of the business.

After working with Gershon I can say with conviction the team has strengthened considerably – relationships have developed, communications have become more open and, as a result, trust has deepened.
