"An appointment to a management role does not automatically equip an individual with successful leadership skills. In many situations people follow management because they have to, however the ideal scenario would be where people follow leaders because they want to. Ergo, an obvious trend has arisen whereby managers are seeking to develop leadership skills. This, combined with
the acceptance of the participative leadership style is also resulting in workgroups developing into “teams” with an emphasis being placed on team leadership as being the top of the evolutionary cycle.
Within teams, it is important to ensure that there is a genuine desire for each team member’s input into the outcome; the caveat
is that the leader must believe that the group members have definite value to add. This does not mean that every idea from every
individual should be implemented, but paying lip service will not be an adequate response for the contemporary employee who
can usually tell if there is a genuine desire to achieve buy-in.
In general, people do not like to have ideas or solutions imposed on them but if they have been part of designing the end game,
they are more likely to have buy-in and an inclination to support and take action on decisions made by the leader. In a study conducted by CCL-Asia, among the variety of events mentioned by respondents, the role of bosses and superiors was the most significant in making a lasting impact on their development. This was the most widely cited event, with 53% of all respondents citing a boss or superior as a source of learning about leadership." (from Mind Resources)
