The Most Effective Leaders Understand Their Follower’s Needs
Tom Rath & Barry Conchie state, “You are a leader only if others follow.”
Donald O. Clifton concluded after studying leaders for over fifty years, “A leader needs to know his strengths as a carpenter knows his tools, or as a physician knows the instruments at her disposal. What great leaders have in common is that each truly knows his or her strengths and can call on the right strength at the right time.”
In 2017 State of the American Workplace states, “The rulebook is being rewritten . . . the one thing leaders cannot do is nothing . . . Leaders must decide what role they want to play in their organization — now in the midst of change and in the future. They can be passive bystanders or active participants in creating and guiding an exceptional workplace.”
In short, leaders need to cut through the clutter to focus on what really matters.
