Default What exactly is leadership and does it create commitment?

Most executives and managers can only dream of having a workforce of fully engaged, highly motivated, highly committed employees having high morale and literally loving to come to work. These people apply 100% of their brainpower on their work thus unleashing their full potential of creativity, innovation, and productivity.

But actually, this dream is quite easy to achieve if they could turn away from the autocratic and bureaucratic approach to one of autonomy and support. Why? Because any form of autocracy and bureaucracy naturally tends to demotivate and demoralize employees, the exact opposite of what we need.

The first step is to understand what leadership actually is.

The second step is to understand what motivates us. This was revealed by the research of psychologists Edward Deci and Richard Ryan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc
