Why do we need power?

If things were to admit of themselves, there would be no need for leadership. This is not the case with the vast majority of organizations that compete with other companies and compete for resources.

Thus, the ability to align the workings of a company in such a way that all gears in the transmission serve the objectives. This ability lends executives a useful power.

Why executives are afraid of action

Even so, the issue of "dealing with power" is in most Company Not openly played and in dealing with the power given to them many leaders are uncertain. Among other things, because they often equate the active use of their power of design and decision by mistake with a lonely, omniscient and authoritarian behavior.

That is why, for example, some executives shy away from "when the going gets tough" and quick, decisive action is necessary to use their decision-making powers. The result: your employees do not know what to do and they lack the necessary support and orientation.

Manipulation and threats are the dark side

It is not only since Master Yoda in Star Wars that we know that power not only has a bright side, but also a dark side. A leadership behavior that uses the competence of convincing, arguing and negotiating is O. K. and is certainly on the bright side.

But when executives start manipulating, threatening and bribing, they are harnessing the potential of the dark side. For some, the pursuit of power has even become an end in itself, ie they do not use it for corporate goals, but to compensate for personal and psychological deficits.

The dark side reduces productivity

Life experience teaches us that executives using the techniques of the dark side are still considered successful and still become or remain leaders. This is especially the case in organizations that look hard at the outcome and are not interested in getting there: what's important to you is what's coming out the bottom.

However, life experience also teaches us that in organizations that tolerate the dark side of power over a longer period of time, a balloted footing begins. Employees who feel pressured and unfairly treated leave the organization. The company's performance is decreasing, the success will be over in the medium term.

Healthy exercise of power intensifies the effect

 

Effective executives succeed in establishing a healthy power exercise for the benefit of the company. With maritime serenity they use the design and decision-making power that is at your disposal.

They reflect the difference between sensible use of power and authoritarian behavior and thus introduce a system of “checks and balances” as voluntary self-control.

5 tips for the correct handling of power

The following tips, or better called lead questions, are helpful in finding out how bright and dark power is in your organization.

  1. Do we have goalkeepers, ie team members, who are questioned about the correctness of a decision? Who is this and why?
  2. Do I know any people in our organization who are afraid of me or my decisions? Why are they afraid?
  3. In which parts of the organization have we concentrated power or influence? Does that make sense or is it different?
  4. How do I implement my initiatives in the organization? What is the role of individual, subgroups or leadership teams?
  5. Of course, I make sure that I convince my employees / our organization and "take it with me". How do I know?
