Leadership Requires Ownership
Research shows that Leadership without Ownership does not exist
We used to debate as to whether "Leadership is a myth or not". Myth generates false hopes and hope is HOPE, whether false or genuine.
We arrived at the notion of "ownership". When we extend our sense of ownership to our organisation, our reflexes include the organisation's well being - a sense of total belonging. People working with me, their well being becomes my well being.
The moment the sense of ownership is infused in a relationship, the reflexes take over. You cease to think and debate. You start to feel and react. Thinking cannot produce spontaneous reaction. There is always latency in thinking. But feeling is spontaneous. It delivers the reaction 100% without transmission loss.
But it should originate from a center of purity without selfish motives and there lies the essence of leadership.
