Is “No-Compromise” the new American keyword?

As we move into a new administration with hopes high for positive change, Americans are paying the hefty price of leadership compromise – by our elected officials, banking and financial institutions, oil companies, automakers and Wall Street itself. With millions out of work, and the crisis showing no signs of letting up, what can business leaders and owners – whether of large corporations or small mom-and-pop enterprises – do to save their companies and survive?
In this new, challenging landscape, taking any company (or government) to the highest level of success and profitability while creating a positive, rewarding workplace environment will require a game-changing paradigm shift.
No-Compromise Leadership can make the difference between championing a successful, profitable and meaningful company that matters to its customers and its team, from one that is contaminated by compromise. Given this, is “No-Compromise” the new American keyword? The answer is, YES!
What is compromise? It is a mode of thinking and behavior. Compromise occurs when leaders see and even acknowledge that a problem exists, but fail to engage, or at best, take the easier path of self-interest. And that is what we’ve been seeing around us, every day. Until now. At this historic juncture, new president Barak Obama speaks of the need for a new sense of responsibility and accountability by all Americans, as we begin to make our way back to financial and societal health. So too does former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in speaking of the need for “no compromise” in relation to preventing Iran from gaining nuclear capabilities.
As a result of adopting no-compromise leadership, business owners and leaders will:
* Experience a sharper, more focused sense of purpose.
* Realize what needs to be done – and do it.
* Tackle pressing issues that are often kept on the back burner where they fester and grow.
* Be a more decisive communicator, especially in relation to employees and associates.
* Make better decisions, because no compromise demands thorough attention to detail.
Leaders and employees will both be more engaged in growth – feeling empowered because they have been empowered. And that kind of empowerment translates to greater job satisfaction and staff retention; an ability to conduct business better, faster and more efficiently; and even enables change initiatives to move smoothly without the once-common internal resistance.
This is the time for no-compromise leadership. This is the time to make “No-Compromise” the keyword for you and your company. If you haven’t read my new book, I urge you to do so. You’ll not only get the no-compromise wake-up call, you’ll get the systems and disciplines to elevate you and your company to a new standard of leadership thinking and behavior.
