Leadership Persuasion During Hard Times


There comes a time in every leader’s career when he/she is faced with seemingly intractable obstacles. Not in terms of deficiencies in resources or competitive pressures, but in terms of people in his/her organization. Often it comes in the form of a coalition of people who do not like or trust him/her. Sometimes this lack of trust is due to lack of knowledge; they do not know him/her. Or it may be based on lack of faith; they do not think he/she is up to the job. The way the leader handles the situation will determine his/her success or failure as a leader. When facing such situations, the leader owes it to him/herself and the organization to defuse the forces against her and then bring people together. Persuasion becomes the rule of the day.
