Authority can be combined with niceness and sympathy. These are not opposites. How exactly does this alleged contradiction work?

Leadership Management by Buddy: Authority despite niceness

Good leadership combines authority and niceness

First, one has to understand: authority and niceness are not opposites. Although that's often the case. And it is precisely these supposed opposites that have to be united.

Because good ones Guide works exactly like this: it combines authority and kindness. So if you are striving for good leadership, you should deal with this topic. To do this, however, it is relevant to be clear about the three types of authority.

  1. Authority by office - that is the authority of a superior
  2. Authority by virtue of knowledge - that is the coryphae in her compartment
  3. Authority-force personality - there is no need for an office or an expert status

The three types of authority are compatible, which means that a luminary can also be a leader and still be a leader Charisma and recognition enjoy as a person. The most valuable authority is power Personality.

Through appearance and personality convincing

An office can be taken again, the Koryphäe is only relevant in its department. However, anyone with perseverance and personality can convince people everywhere.

Who visites sympathisch occurs, it suits him World open. Anyone who has to lead (or better: is allowed to) also needs one Method, how people support him and do the right thing. Pressure leads to back pressure and is for sure not the right way.

Instead, it is a matter of personality and its development. In my view, this includes the communicative and rhetorical abilities.

And there it is for many in trouble. Mostly, most of all, those who do not care much about it. I notice that in my seminars and coachings.

haughtiness comes before the event

Those who are aware of how important this topic is are not just coming to me or my colleagues, they have been working on their skills for a while and have reached a certain level.

Those who overestimate themselves in this regard believe that they are good enough or do not see the need (“It depends on the what, not on the how”) and think they do not have to improve anything.

The development of rhetorical skills means personal development

rhetoric doesn't just mean being able to hold speeches. Rhetoric is the work on body language, voice and manner of speech, expression and language.

In that sense, the development of rhetorical skills is real personality development and the best way is a sense of the right appearance and the right words.

It depends on the "HOW"

Anyone who wants to have a good AND a working wire with his employees needs these skills. In addition to sympathy, respect plays an important role in gaining and transmitting this authority.

And above all, we have respect for role models and people who act confidently. And the latter, in turn, is something that the Employees notice in every aspect of the appearance. Is it an act of security that sometimes comes across as too harsh or even arrogant?

Sympathy and respect are not contradictions

Or is there someone to his words and understands these thoughts so that the employees can accept them and make them theirs.

Sympathy and respect are not contradictions. With an eloquent appearance and a confident personality, you will win your employees by virtue of their personality.
