Thanks for a great post, Rebecca.

What commitments have you found helpful in encouraging organizational maturity in your school?
Here are three that come to mind (they are current realities):
* My commitment to be responsible, only, for my function as dean and carrying out the work according to my standards--regardless of whether they are understood or appreciated by others.
* My commitment to not accommodate to weakness, anxieties, or irresponsibility on the part of others--students, staff, or faculty
* My commitment to invest in only the mature persons in the system ("I only lead the willing.")
