End of Workout

Circle of Trust (CoT)

The Q is a Leader who takes responsibility for Outcome

*Outcome: what happens and fails to happen, whether good or bad

Taking Responsibility for the Outcome is a three-step process

The first step in taking responsibility for Outcome is to know what it is you want to happen. Having Vision (seeing the Outcome) is part of what a Leader does. If the Leader does not have a clear destination in mind, how can anyone follow him there?

The second step is to devise a course of action (a COA) that has a substantial likliehood of success. A COA is a planned Movement to solve a Problem or achieve an Outcome. It is the path that will lead to realization of the Vision.

The third step is to demonstrate Commitment, the Leader’s unwavering loyalty and determination to both Mission and the well being of the Members of his Group.

All three steps are necessary. Without Vision, a Leader won’t know where he his going, without a COA he won’t know how to get there and without Commitment no one else will trust him enough to follow him.
