Are you exercising leadership or authority in their family, work or community? When you want to implement new ideas, “puts pressure on your family, your neighbors or coworkers? Being a good leader goes far beyond merely exercise authority. A good leader challenges his followers to question things they take for granted and thus removed from his position of comfort and suggested they change their current situation. A person who exercises authority, however, just pressure to force others to change. The problem is that it is not easy to change people. All of us hate the changes. We like to stay in our comfort zone. Therefore the authority to exercise does not work when it requires a change in people.

It only works when you have to solve a technical problem that does not require a process of adaptation on the part of individuals. Consider a company that wants to make changes to your computer system to improve its performance. To purchase these new systems require a simple order the manager, as this is the technical part of the problem. In this type of problem works great authority. However, implementing a new software also has an adaptation component of the team.

A good leader has to make to encourage his team to make the changes necessary to function well with the new software. If exercise authority at this point, only going to create pressure and probably some results. However, because the change would only be external, it creates a dependency relationship of the leader. This work leads to nothing when the leader is gone. A leader who exercises good leadership in a situation, will challenge his team to adapt to new change demonstrating their understanding of it is a process of adaptation that will not happen overnight. First will cause discomfort, as the team will resist change. Even some are going to want to rebel. So often the leaders are attacked. However, if the leader fails to implement the change to a tolerable level for the other, he and his team will continue, since they will be able to change their way of working successfully. This wisdom can be applied in all areas, not just one company, since we are all leading to a greater or lesser degree. Perhaps it is time to change the strategy. Be a good leader!
