The Courage To Lead has a great piece on "The Courage To Lead."

Their premise?

  • The single biggest barrier to implementing strategy is courage.


  • Many people (and firms) lack the guts to stick with the plans and goals they have set for themselves.
  • They lack the courage of their own convictions

In short, executing a strategy takes courage. You must be willing to practice what you preach, when it is convenient and (most important) when it is not.

BOTTOMLINE: "If you’re going to pursue a strategy, you must be willing to make hard choices and act as if you truly believe in your own strategy."
