Leadership Promises - A Standard of Excellence

"Those who have served will gain an excellent standing . . . " 1 Timothy 3:13 (NIV)
Leadership Promises - A Standard of Excellence
Leadership Promises - A Standard of Excellence.
The word "competent" sometimes gets used to mean "barely adequate." When I talk about the quality of competence that is desirable in teammates, I mean it in the sense of its root word which means "complete." Competent team members have everything they need to do the job and do it well.

People who are highly competent have some things in common:
They are committed to excellence:- John Johnson in Christian Excellence writes, "Success bases our worth on a comparison with others. Excellence gauges our value by measuring us against our own potential."
They never settle for average:- The word "mediocre" literally means "halfway up a stony mountain." Competent people never settle for average or mediocre.
They pay attention to detail:- Dale Carnegie said, "If you do little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves."
They perform with consistency:- Highly competent people give their best all the time. If 99.9 percent were good enough, then 811,000 faulty rolls of 35mm film would be loaded this year, 22,000 checks would be deducted from the wrong bank accounts in the next 60 minutes, and twelve babies would be given to the wrong parents today alone.

Good day!
