Look at some of the qualities of some of the most successful leaders in your organisation and chances are a high level of personal drive will be one of their main qualities.
Personal drive matters to your results and success for a number of reasons:
- It’s your personal drive that turns ideas into action and action into results.
- It keeps you going even when times are tough and challenging.
- It sets the tone for what you are seeking from others in the organisation.
- It enables you to bounce back from disappointments and setbacks.
While personal drive does matter, remember that having a strong personal drive is not about being a nightmare to work with, bullying or destroying people. For me it is about pushing forward with others to deliver great results.
