Commitment – This is an attribute necessary in every employee and leader. A committed person sees to the end what they were involved with in the beginning. A committed person gives it their all. People sometimes may not show some commitment if the direction and vision of the organization are not clear. People will certainly not commit to something they are not sure of.

You compete for space, orders, attention etc. It is healthy to have competition. Your competition is not your enemy. It helps to keep your services in check.
