There are some people that one would run through a brick wall for. These are ‘leaders’. How we engage in a ‘relationship’ is reliant on individual behaviours and how those behaviours influence people around them.
Leaders influence people authentically rather than simply ‘give’ their opinion and force them to take it on board. Leaders truly engage people with a collective sense of purpose and the strategies to achieve that. Leaders truly connect with people, listen to accurately understand and engage their thinking to drive more effective behaviour. Leaders coach in order release the potential of people – rather than manage their limitations – in order that everything doesn’t ‘hinge’ on them.
The secret of leadership is that we all have abilities to be able to do it. Positive engagement and authentic influence are skills and a behaviours that can be developed by anyone – not just certain personality types.
