My highest score in the “Chapter 1.2 Conceptualizing Leadership Questionnaire” (Northouse, p. 15) was in process emphasis. This talks about how leadership isn’t an innate quality, such as ability or trait, but rather the interaction between a leader and his/her follower(s) (Northouse, p. 7). The better one is at being able to influence his/her followers, the better he/she would be as a leader. If one can’t influence anyone, he/she would not be a leader who would be able to accomplish all tasks to their fullest potential. I agree with this because I feel influencing is
The first skill of idealized influence is the “ability of the leader to build loyalty and commitment within others by building a sense of mission, without consideration of their own self-needs” (Ghadi & Fernando, 2013, p.535). To build loyalty among followers, “the leader will have to strengthen mutual confidence, respect and trust” (Doody & Doody, 2012, p.2). As a leader, I will first have to show confidence in my decision-making as well as my vision that I am exuding. Idealized influence is the ability of the leader to build commitment within their followers, which is influenced by self-confidence, respect and trust. Involving followers and asking for their advice will help to instil a sense of mutual respect and trust. For the leader to be effective in influencing their followers, they must also have charisma, defined by Doody & Doody
Performing an internet search for a definition of leadership pulls up a plethora of results, each definition slightly different from the last. The readings from the Leadership: Theory and Practice book also draw attention to the multitude of descriptions of leadership as well as the strengths, weaknesses and practical implications for several different leadership approaches. Specifically, trait, skills, style and situational. This paper will outline the implications of each of these models for my leadership profile and will also outline some insights that I have gained at the physician leadership level with my organization for each approach.
A leader that is also an influencer cannot only create positive behaviors from others, but they can also create long lasting positive behaviors. It is important to make a person feel like they have the option to choose from behavior A or behavior B. When you take away a persons choice in the matter it is more than likely that they will rebel. It is also important to allow others to learn of the positive and negative outcomes regarding their decisions. Once a person becomes aware of the possible long-term positive impact of doing a specific behavior, more than likely they will stick to choosing that correct behavior. An influencer provides others with a 360-degree view of their behaviors. If people are 100% aware of the consequences and results of their behaviors, then they will be more likely to want to, on their own, alter their behaviors in order to produce successful
To become a great influencer, a leader understands they must already have a relationship in place prior to a situation where influence is necessary. This can be referred to as “laying the groundwork”. Leaders should be setting themselves up for success every day by forming trusting relationships with colleagues, building credibility within and out of the organization, and by developing and nurturing their network. Great influential leaders do not wait until need something to begin connecting with others. In an informal survey taken by BlessingWhite, “three quarters of respondents said that they’d be more likely to do something for someone else if he/she had done something for them in the past.” (High, 2012). While it is important that the requests do not come across as tit-for-tat, making requests thoughtfully and selflessly is a great lesson for young leaders while growing in their understating of influential leadership.
Everyone has faced the challenge of trying to convince someone that their idea, their product, or their plan is the right one. If we establish ourselves as a person of trust with a sound vision and an eye for those around us, we will likely be successful in this endeavor. It is in this process that we begin creating and sustaining influence over others. One of the many qualities of an effective leader is forming one-on-one relationships. When we build these relationships upon a foundation of trust and our actions make not only ourselves, but others, successful, we begin to create influence. If we have successfully been influential, followers trust our judgment, believe in our cause, and share our vision. Creating influence is one of the major
The word power in itself is synonymous with influence. To become a strong leader, one must take action and speak with power. Although tone is a value, one’s words do not count for nothing in

Influence processes require some type of power to be effective. Leaders use power, both positional and personal, to influence the behavior and actions of others. The concept of influence processes is very much like leadership styles in the respect that there is not an exact number of the different types of influence processes. In this paper, six different influence processes will be discussed, with examples of the type of outcome a leader can achieve by using them.
