When we hear the word “Commitment” we sometimes immediately think of how it pertains to relationships.  But what about Commitment when it comes to Leadership?  One of the leadership exercises is called “Commitment In Action.”  During this exercise the students are first asked to define commitment.  Then we ask them to define “commitment in action.”  At that point they are given a specific task to do and they must commit to completing it fully.  How does this translate into the real world?  When you are committed to a cause, you must add the action behind it to fulfill on that cause.  Nowadays, people are quick to commit to something, but not follow through due to inconvenience, loss of interest or just flat out excuses.  Our goal is to have each participant to understand the importance of the commitments they make and how fulfilling on them lines up with them fulfilling on their own cause.
