The Issue of Control
Leaders have direct control only over themselves. Yet many leaders believe they can exert a special kind of influence over others simply by telling them what to do more persuasively, more clearly, or more forcefully. Or that by sheer force of charisma, vision, or intelligence they can move mountains and control outcomes.
Successful leaders learn to change the way they envision and enact control. They recognize the need to manage the constant process of ensuring that decisions are made by the people who need to make and own them.
