FORGOTTEN DIMENSION OF LEADERSHIP

W. Chan Kim - Renée Mauborgne - Ludo van der Heyden writing on Napoleons leadership style says that how a leader interacts with his or her subordinates is a very critical dimension of leadership.


“In our decade-long research into leadership, we found that a critical but frequently forgotten dimension is the process by which a leader interacts with his or her people to make decisions. Our systematic research shows the causal relationship between procedural fairness and the quality and execution of strategic decisions in corporations. Fair process may have been largely ignored in leadership, but we found that this dimension can make or break a leader.”


They suggest that leaders should constantly evaluate how they communicate, consult and transfer ownership of their decisions to their management teams.
