Leadership is the lifeblood of any organization. And yet, many companies fail to understand why more of their leaders can’t find success. In more than a decade of research, we have uncovered a common cause for this dilemma: that most leaders struggle with one or the other of their major roles. Most leaders in business excel at fostering either accountability or development, but fail to realize that both are essential to their success.
Without making their team members accountable for performance, bottom line targets and results will never be actualized, and the leader of the business will either be replaced or guide a team that is chronically under performing. Similarly, employees in organizations who aren’t properly developed – that is, don’t receive the right motivation, encouragement, and growth from their supervisors – will eventually become disengaged, and possibly leave the organization altogether.
The Power of Influence
We define the amount of influence in a relationship as the inverse of the amount of positional power required to get anything done. In other words, people follow you because they want to, not because they have to. As such, influence is perhaps the most important skill that you can master as a leader.
