Effective versus Strong Leadership

At the heart of every successful organisation or group is the driving force of effective leadership. "Everything rises and falls on leadership" (Maxwell, The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, 1993). Weak leadership can wreck the soundest strategy and even an organisation itself.
A strong leader is one who approaches leadership with an attitude that assumes responsibility for group or organisational outcomes. This sense of responsibility ought to translate into positive leader behaviours that leverage the potential of the most essential asset of an organisation - people.
The effective leader understands and demonstrates that there is no one way that is the best way to influence people. And being aware of his responsibility he is willing to adapt to derive positive results for the group members, the organisation at large, and himself.
