Challenges for the Modern Leader

Challenges for the Modern Leader #5: Say/Do Ratio

This week, I am proposing 5 challenges facing modern leaders, and the respective competencies needed to face each challenge. If you like a specific post, please ‘like/favourite/share’ it. The post with the most amount of engagements will earn a follow up post outlining HOW TO DEVELOP COMPETENCIES RELATED TO THAT POST.

Say/Do Ratio

This is pretty self explanatory, but often overlooked by management teams. If a leader’s say/do ratio is less than 1:1, that leader is in trouble. There are few things that damage credibility more than not following through on something you said you would do.

Modern leaders, keep this in mind. Don’t commit to an action unless you’re positive it can be completed. Don’t make false promises.
