John Maxwell said, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” I agree with this statement. This is especially true in the area of discipline. The discipline of a leader determines the success of a team. If a leader justifies a lack of discipline through sentiment or a lack of personal discipline, then the team will not have the discipline to succeed. Leaders that are not satisfied with the discipline of their team have to take a close look at what they personally do and believe. It’s important to understand that the success of a team is directly tied to the self-discipline of the leader.
