Managing self and leading others without authority: leadership principles

Interested in knowing more about managing self and leading others without authority? Do not miss our KeyNote conference featuring Paul Green, a doctoral Candidate in Management at Harvard Business School and experienced entrepreneur on October 3rd, 2018, starting at 6.30 pm. Here is a look at what he says about how to lead with influence rather than with authority and the evolution of management over the next 10 years.

"Leader as influencer is somewhat intuitive: this is the way we tend to think about leadership. It’s about 'how do I interact with other people in order to get them to do what I need them to do?'. It’s about the words you use, the way you treat others, perhaps your personality. But that’s only one part of leadership. Leaders also, whether they realize it or not, are creating an organizational context—through rules, policies, structures, cultural norms—that will also influence others’ behavior—even when the leader isn’t physically there. think that organizations and society more generally will evolve to see work differently—not just as a place where people get a paycheck for their time or services, but as a place that is meant to fulfill some wide set of critical and deep needs. My theory and hypothesis is that organizations that recognize these heightened expectations sooner rather than later, and respond to them, will be the leaders in their industries—they’ll be most attractive to employees, and the environment, because it fulfills these expectations, will lead to maximal motivation and performance."
