Another insight of leadership
I do not want to express myself as a person who values the human's feeling highly. But undeniably, the art of leading indeed involves a lot of elements of feelings. How to affect individuals and enable them to follow your aim and patterns of thinking? Firstly, I insist, influence a person's behavior can be done by influencing this person's emotional feeling, or we can call it psychological influence, which are the fundamental and the most effective method.
More specifically, if we want to change an urban terrorist in a team, the most effective and fundamental way is to affect this person via his inner feeling ,which is the vulnerable and sensitive corner that hard to control by sensibility. Besides ,vision can be regard as another pattern of emotional stimulation,(even though sometimes it could be pure profitable stimulation , when robbers rob the bank in the film ,their vision could be the visual happiness life only if they got money without catching by the policemen)
In my point of view, personal power is mental power whilst position power is physical one. So a good lead first have to be an easy-going person, thus can have potential impact on his employees' behavior emotionally and psychologically.
Meanwhile, language as well as body language is by no means of trivial significance for it easily to draw a negative influence if the expression is not appropriate. One should carefully pay attention to stimulating people via emotional level.
The most difficult part is to make a decision. Although it is unavoidable for human beings to make mistake, but when it comes to leaders, they should better have the capacity to make right decision, or, the days of being called"leader" will not last long. Let's say, if a leader can always make right decisions only with position power, I will wonder whether I should work for him or not even though I know he can lead many successful cases. However, if a leader possessed with strong personal power but always decides on wrong direction, no doubt that nobody wishes to work with him for a long time including me.
Anyway, leadership never fails to be a complex topic for it involves much elements including human's feeling and psychological perspectives.
