How Successful Leaders Build Connection That Drives Results

How Successful Leaders Build Connection That Drives Results - Dr Michelle K Johnston

Break the chains of command.

Being a leader in today’s world can be exceptionally difficult. In fact, it can be argued it is more difficult now to be a leader than at any point in the past. Why is that? Modern leaders are finding that what worked for centuries now puts them at a disadvantage and changing with the times is the only solution. Tried and try methods of leading people, often no longer do.

Shifting from the antiquated “command and control” leadership style to one based on building connections with yourself, your methods of communication, and your organization is tantamount to building relationships and driving successful results.

Executives who use the stale “command and control” style are getting pushed out of organizations, finding their methods no longer valued or as successful as they once were. This derives from failing to establish a deep connection with the people on their teams. Today’s most effective leaders are all about connection, not putting on an act by trying to look like what a leader should be.

In this episode of Tortal’s Training Unleashed Podcast hosted by Evan Hackel, Dr. Michelle K. Johnston, author of The Seismic Shift in Leadership, discusses deeper levels of connection for leaders: Connecting with yourself, connecting to your communication style, and connecting to your organization.
