Grip, determination, and persistence are a few of the words associated with tenacity. On the heels of yesterday’s post about optimism and positivity, it seemed appropriate to consider the idea of tenacity in leadership. Don’t ask why.
Being able to grip something, or hold on to it firmly, is crucial for long term success in leadership.
The quality of being determined presents an attitude of strength to endure the distractions.
Without persistence leaders find themselves easily ready to give up and move on.
Tenacity, as defined in these three areas, demonstrates the ability of leaders to take a group of individuals who might not otherwise continue and motivate them to heights unknown.
The tenacity of leaders like Joshua and Caleb in the Old Testament, or men like the apostle Paul, encourages everyone who emulates them and the tenacious spirit they exemplify.
When leaders possess tenacity in approaching the establishment of goals and the development of plans to achieve those goals, confidence results for those who follow.
Leaders must hold on with the determination that no matter what happens they will be persistent.
