Delegated authority is a fact of life in most all organizations. When asked why people should follow them, many average managers reply, "Because I'm the one in charge. Do it or I'll get someone else." That is not leadership. All you can get through authority alone is compliance. Effective leaders can stimulate willing commitment to a cause, leading to self-motivated, dedicated followers. Tim Stevenson selects principles from his book, BETTER: The Fundamentals of Leadership, clearly illustrated by many real-life stories from his extensive training and coaching experience to explain what you must know and do if you want others to follow you. Like fundamentals in most spheres, they are simple to understand, but they are deceptively simple. They are a lifetime challenge to apply, but the benefits to you and others are enormous.
