“The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority”
- Kenneth Blanchard
Anyone who has tried to get their five-year-old to do something against their will, would be wise to the fact that “authority” is an illusion. This is all the more true in organizational life. Nobody has the formal authority to achieve what is necessary, not even with those who report to them. Gone are the days (if there ever was) when managers could just make their direct reports do whatever was needed. Organizational life is too complicated and the younger generations are much too independent minded for accepting that.
