Responsibility is something we take seriously at Calvary Chapel Kendall. We don’t just give it out, we don’t abuse it, and we don’t take it lightly. My Pastor has taught me to take responsibility for my actions and for the actions of my team. It’s a part of leadership. Too many people nowadays, especially younger people, are unwilling to take responsibility for their actions. This is troubling. On the other hand, when a young person is willing to own up to their mistakes, that’s a great sign of maturity, especially when they own up to the mistakes of their team. Seek out those who are willing to take responsibility, promote them, and watch them excel! Take those who make excuses and tell them to grow up! If they don’t….. get rid of them.
Is this easy? Absolutely not, owning up to something is one of the most difficult things you can do. Apologizing for it even more so. We all make mistakes, so when you do, do you give an excuse, or do you give an apology?
