Vision and Accountability

Vision and Accountability

The qualities of outstanding leaders, those respected by the people they lead, have been detailed by thought-leaders over and over through the years.  What Drucker, Collins, Wheatley, Pink, and I all agree on is that effective leaders demonstrate integrity, the talent to simultaneously encourage and challenge people, and the ability to provide clear direction and vision.  Today, the pressure to deliver results is causing managers at all levels to resort to using fear and control.  While these may drive short-term results, they destroy motivation and the capacity of organizations.  At times like these, it is even more important to reestablish effective leadership and to replace fear and control with vision and accountability.
