7.2 Learning Bytes: Leadership → 1.06 Adaptive Leadership

Using Authority and Power (Taking Chances) (AL002)


Description
Leadership isn’t about being in a position of authority. It’s about how well you can influence other people and mobilize them for your cause. Anyone can be a leader. Adaptive leaders encourage leadership among their employees so everyone can deal with challenges more easily.

To get things done and provoke change, you may have to take a chance and challenge authority yourself. That’s not easy. There are psychological barriers which might hold you back. Fortunately, there are processes you can follow and strategies you can use to overcome those barriers and be a great adaptive leader.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Distinguish leadership from authority and power so you can lead adaptively within any role
• Recognize the importance of developing your informal authority to increase your influence
• Identify barriers that hold you back from taking chances to be an adaptive leader
• Use processes and strategies to overcome barriers so you can take chances and lead successfully

Why take this course?

If you have a leadership role or work in human resources, you’ll find this course essential. You’ll learn how leadership is separate from authority and power, and why it’s important to develop your informal authority. You’ll also be able to identify what might hold you back from taking chances and use processes and strategies to overcome those barriers.
