“The price of greatness is responsibility.” — Winston Churchill

Responsibility: the ability to respond properly to a situation or circumstance, is a leadership essential.  An ”I must do something” attitude always solves more problems than, “Something must be done.”

Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz states, “A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all.  It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future.”  Dr. Booker T. Washington, born into slavery but set free after the Civil War wrote, “Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders are skilled in their ability to respond, and, they insist their people own both present circumstances and future aspirations.
