A Leaders Sources of Power



As I was writing my  “Legacies from multiple perspectives “ response for class today I started thinking about a leader sources of power.

I think a leaders source of power comes partially from their experiences. Experiences are what make leaders authentic. A leaders authenticity gives them credibility and influence.  Influence also comes from passionate energy, which unleashes energy in subordinates, and empowers subordinates to accomplish something.

So following that line, leading by example influences, empowers, and unleashes energy in subordinates, empowering them to accomplish something.

Active &Good Listener- being able to listen leads to discussions, which leads to sharing of ideas which people are passionate about. Another way which a leaders passion comes through, in listening and then discussion which influences and empowers subordinates.

I also think that active & good listening is required to be a good leader.. Being able to listen leads to discussions, which leads to sharing of ideas which people are passionate about and then the influencing and empowering of subordinates.

I realize my insights shared above were gained from experience. I have known for a while that leaders are developed through experiences, but now I also realize leader insights come from experiences as well.
