I saw a post recently talking about forcing people to ‘follow a leader.’ What struck me is that if you’re forcing people to follow, then you’re not leading.

Which got me thinking.

People in corporate environments frequently find themselves in a position of being forced to follow. This often results from someone’s positional or referential power.

These sources of power are real. They’re neither good nor bad. However, the outcomes may be sub-optimal if a leader uses only their power to achieve an outcome.

However, employing both your power and leadership is more likely to create the outcomes you want.
