What? Leaders are like farmers?

Leaders are like farmers? Seriously!

Farmers can never make the seeds geminate, but what they can do is to provide the right kind of soil, with the right combination of clay, the right temperature and the right amount of water and even sunshine etc. They plant the seeds, monitor the process and it almost guaranteed the seeds will grow and harvest as expected.

For leaders, it is almost the same logic. Leaders do not teach or motivate their followers or employees. They care for the physchological needs, for example, their feelings of autonomy, competence and relatedness, help them with right thinking process and create the approporiate environment for them to be self-motivated. That is the way to create engaged employees and in return almost without any doubts, they will create value back to the organization.
