Imagine this - you've been expecting someone on your team to complete an important task. The deadline is looming. You're ready for the deliverable at any time, and then...and then they start the list of excuses why they can't complete the task.
No fun, right?
Not acceptable, true?
True for you, and true for others who rely on you as well.
Leading for success leaves little room for excuses.
When I worked at Whole Foods one of my bosses once said, "we live in the land of no excuses." It was true there then, and it's true here now. Nobody is interested in any excuses.
