When a person is called to a position in the LDS church, the person feels a lot of pressure to accept.  ... <asked to fulfill> ... We also believe in "magnifying our callings", which is basically- give it your all, do your best, etc.  ... 


Combine the bishop asking, "magnifnifying our callings" and the macho'ism of being a man, I'd imagine it would be hard to say no.  Saying no is somewhat saying your bishop is wrong, saying you're not following a tenant of your faith and denying the macho-ism every guy has.  So, I can easily see many leaders getting boxed in and not doing a great job.  But that can happen inside and outside LDS units.  Just a different path.
