Chapter 15: Leadership *See Manager’s Challenge on page 489. I. The Nature of Leadership Leadership is the ability to influence people toward the attainment of goals. Three aspects of leadership stand out: people, influence, and goals. Leadership occurs among people, involves the use of influence, and is used to attain goals. Influence means that the relationship among people is proactive, and it is designed to achieve an end or a goal. II. Leadership for Contemporary Times A significant influence on leadership styles in recent years is the turbulence and uncertainty of the environment that most organizations operate in. Ethical and economic difficulties, corporate governance concerns, globalization, changes in technology, new ways of working, shifting employee expectations, and significant social transitions have changed the way we think about and practice leadership. The Post-Heroic Approach of the contemporary times focuses on the subtle, unseen, and often unrewarded acts that good leaders perform everyday, rather then grand accomplishments of celebrated business heroes. Two approaches in tune with post-heroic leadership in today’s times are Level 5 Leadership and Interactive Leadership. Humility is being unpretentious and modest rather than arrogant and prideful. o Level 5 Leadership Level 5 Leadership was discovered by a 5 year study conducted by Jim Collins. It is the highest level in the hierarchy of manager capabilities. See exhibit 15.1 on page 491. Level 5 Leadership builds an enduring great organization through a combination of personal humility and professional resolve. o Women’s Ways of Leading Interactive Leadership is a leadership style characterized by values such as inclusion, collaboration, relationship building and caring. Influence is derived from relationships rather than position power. Common amongst women. III. Leadership Versus Management Management promotes stability, order, and problem solving within the existing organizational structure and systems. Leadership promotes vision, creativity, and change. “a managers takes car of where you are, a leader takes you to a new place”
