The perception that leadership is about leading by force is no longer accepted. If you believe this, you will not attract the best people to your team.
Many leaders make the mistake of believing that leadership is all about them, and they think that their title gives them the power to force certain behaviors from people.
Leadership has nothing to do with having power over someone; it’s about using your influence to inspire and empower your people to achieve the impossible.
Leaders set a direction, build an inspiring vision, and innovate. It is all about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.
Our workforce has changed, and as such, our thinking about work and leadership must change to give our organization any chance of survival in this very competitive world. When you understand that It is all about people and using your influence to inspire, empower, and motivate your team to become the very best, your organization will become one of the best in the world.
