Why leaders won’t follow you

A lot of my clients decry that there are no leaders in their companies. 

They wish people would take more responsibility. 

They wish they would take more initiative. 

But of course they quash any leadership they don’t agree with. 

Creating leaders is one thing. 

Empowering them to make choices is another. 

And letting them make choices you don’t agree with is something else still. 

If you want to create leaders that will follow you, you have to generate trust. 

You have to enroll them. 

You have to really hear out their points of view. 

Otherwise, they either won’t follow you or won’t be leaders.
