    What does this famous leadership quote actually mean?

    This is arguably the most important and influential definition of leadership this century. And it all happened in this one sentence. But what does it really mean? ..........

    “Leadership is the influential increment over and above mechanical compliance with the routine directives of the organization” (D.Katz & Kahn, 1966, 1978)

    Leaders see possibilities beyond the established norm and inspire followers to achieve them.

    Wow, this sounds challenging. I'd take the whole quote as a drive that the most basic steps to good leadership is to make things light and easy to carry on. It's not about handling things in ironclad rules but with what could make it work out in the best possible action. I think this challenges sensible decision-making. Does that makes sense? I hope:smile
