Transformational Leadership Dramas

~Hello Transformational Leader ~

Something I have noticed in one of the communities I serve in is that sometimes people commit to a role of leadership, and then later on, once the going gets tough, they say,
"I was in desire, and no longer have a purpose to be in this role".

What kind of example does this set for the rest of the team?
That we can commit ourselves to a task, role or project with the purpose of leadership, and then pull out because we are no longer connected with our purpose?

Is that not the journey of a leader, and especially the Transformational Leader?
Are we not called to notice what gets in our way on our leadership journey and resolve, transform and transcend our fears of inadequacy and limitation?

How can we suppose to lead others, when our own lack of commitment drama is present?
We pull out when the going gets tough, or we lose faith, or we face delay, disappointment or disaster. That is not what leadership is about. Firstly it is about commitment.

As a Transformational Leader, what have you given your commitment to recently, and not kept you word about? No matter how big or small, not keeping our word or promise undermines our integrity and our personal power.
How can we call others out on their integrity and personal power if we ourselves are lacking integrity?

Be ruthless with this, because if it is present in you, it runs a part of your life. It draws power away from you. By simply acknowledging it, you can reclaim that power. Your power. Your authentic, real personal power.

You and those around you are worth it.
So go for it!
