What is Triadic Leadership? Harnessing Knowledge, Trust and Power.
Effective leaders harness three forces: knowledge, trust and power.
The first force in the triad of leadership is knowledge. Effective leaders know or can find out what should be done. In other words,they have vision, and they know wow to fulfill that vision.
The second force in the triad is trust. People trust effective triadic leaders, giving them loyalty and commitment. Triadic leaders earn trust by disclosing relevant information, sharing influence, and competently using knowledge. They earn trust by fairness in their dealings with others-fulfilling the spirit of their agreements, sharing rewards and hard times and not abusing their power.
The third force is power. Effective triadic leaders use their power appropriately. They know when and how to delegate. They know how to review and evaluate constructively. They know how to be consultants, providing guidance rather than issuing commands.

Power Aspect of Triadic Leadership
This is an insightful contribution towards leadership matters. On the power aspect may I add by saying leaders should work hard on learning how not to use power and then that's when the people they lead will see them as human beings something which can bring good relations at work!

Quadruple Leadership

Triadic leadership - I like the thinking. However, with knowledge, trust and power, there is still a major influence that's missing. Contemporary and effective leaders need to be "Visionary".
