How Can a Leader Be Effective?

One good and seemingly simple answer to this question is: by creating resonance. Resonance comes from the Latin word resonare, meaning: "again creating sound". Effective leaders are attuned to other people's feelings and move them in a positive emotional direction.
For more information about creating resonance and your question please refer to the Leadership Styles knowledge center.

What Makes a Leader Effective (or Not?)

A few words on effective - so the question is to cause an effect. Under different CIRCUMSTANCES different methods deliver a more of less "suitable" effect. In an emergency ward all present are trained for the purpose of the ward - saving lives. They all have roles and tasks. Usually there is one "leader" calling the shots. Until some other role has a really better plan or the "leader" asks for alternatives.
Quite different is the situation where a marketing team needs to define a campaign and the creative interaction of those present (or maybe even those not present) are needed for optimum result. Maybe no one has a clear picture of the desired outcome. Maybe there is not even a leader.
