Above and Beyond

What is the standard? Great leaders communicate standards clearly and often. Great teammates take that clarity and see the standard as the beginning of the goal. They do everything they can to push past the standard to create a margin that protects the team from substandard. They don’t rest until that margin is created. This attitude is where we get the phrase “above and beyond” the call of duty. It should be noted that those are the people that get rewarded.
