Are you serious about re-wiring your mindset so that you can become an even better leader? Then, you are going to have to adopt the Enterprise Commitment as your daily mantra: "When working in a team or group environment, I will place the interests of the enterprise ahead of my own."

The above Enterprise Commitment is applicable in any situation, formal or informal, when you aim to help a group of two or more people achieve their common goals.

The Enterprise Commitment serves as a reminder that your natural leadership style doesn't always translate to strengths in leadership. In order to transcend your natural leadership style, you are going to have to adopt the mindset of a Synergist leader
