Leadership as a Multidimensional Phenomenon

Leadership is not limited just to singular measure of effectiveness it is a multidimensional phenomenon.

"A distinction about popular art and great art is the many (and deeper) levels of meaning to be found in the latter." ~ James O'Toole




Key Feature of Values-based Leadership

Values-based leadership is different from other modes in that it includes all the three factors:

Effectiveness measuring the achievement of the objectives

Morality measuring how change affects concerned parties, and

Time measuring the desirability of any goal over the long term

Values-based leadership is not simply about a Style, how-to, following some recipe, or even mastering "the Vision thing". Instead, it is about ideas, values, and  understanding the different and conflicting needs of followers, energizing followers to pursue a goal than they had never thought possible.
