The influential role of leadership and its impact on the success of your organization
It was interesting last evening watching the fourth GOP Debate and listening to the individuals talk. Some of them looked and sounded like leaders. Some of them looked and sounded like politicians. Some of them looked like they might have been coerced into being there or had something better to do. All of them caused me to think about what I look for in a leader and by extension, what employees look for in leadership.
One of the comments that was made had to do with “negotiating from a position of strength,” with respect to negotiating with Russia. As a leader, you need to take the same position – negotiating from a position of strength. You are leading a company – a business, and thus, you are a business person, and the lead business person at your company. Therefore, by extension, the way that you do business is the way that those at your company should do business. So if you’ve got a soft-handed approach, or no approach at all, then you can expect the same from your Company. If you exude strength, however, you will find that your organization will follow.
