Keep Your Promises

Keep Your Promises

Keep Your Promises. Let’s admit it. Leaders make a lot of promises. Often new and veteran leaders make promises that they simply cannot keep. A president may offer to meet with faculty on a regular basis as an approach to improve communication when what the faculty desire is an assurance that they can influence decisions and policies. When leaders take the time to understand their stakeholders’ needs, they can make meaningful commitments. In practice, many factors may keep the executive from fulfilling their promises. Whatever the reason, failing to keep promises or commitments can be detrimental to the leader. To avoid unfulfilled promises, leaders can make fewer promises and develop systems to track commitments over time
