Chapter 5. Commit with Passion

“Wheresoever you go,go with all your heart.”

—Confucius

Commitment

Rules provide the framework for talented people to work collectively in a team. Trust and respect bind the team together and keep it in good health. Commitment contributes to the stability of the team and helps its members execute even when they must overcome challenges.

When people commit themselves to a team, they pledge their time, attention, and energy to help the team achieve its goals. That pledge must include a statement of priority and importance if the commitment is to have any real meaning. Agreeing to help, but then bailing out or delivering late when other things get in the way, is nothing less than a complete letdown for a team.
