Becoming A Disciplined Leader

The Disciplined Leader Series

As a leader, you have a certain set of standard for those you lead. Those standards basically revolve around your followers being disciplined.

For some, this question may sting. When you begin to think about whether or not you’re disciplined as a leader, you realize this is an area you struggle in.

You lack the discipline to show up on time. You may lack the discipline to control company spending. Or you may lack the discipline to hold your tongue when you’re facing opposition.

As much as you might desire for your team to be disciplined, you must be disciplined as well. You have to have the self-control you desire to see in those you lead.

What do you think about when you think of someone who’s disciplined? I think of someone in the United States Army.
