Getting Others To FOLLOW The Leader

We often discuss how important it is to get others to listen, consider our perspectives and reasons, and FOLLOW us intently, because they want to. You can never, effectively do so, by coercion, but, rather, especially, when it comes to making a difference in leadership, it is essential to get those you serve and represent to FOLLOW their leader. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly examine, consider, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and why it's important and significant.
1. Face facts; future; furnish; fruition: Why would anyone follow you, if they believed you weren't facing the facts, and looking to the future, in order to furnish the best, most relevant, sustainable solutions, and approaches! One must go way, beyond, mere empty rhetoric, and promises, but, rather, he must bring his ideas, to a quality, viable solution, and create a quality action plan, after professional, strategic planning!
2. Options; opportunities: Proceed with a willingness to seriously consider alternatives, and options, in order to recognize the finest opportunities, and take the best courses of action, opting for the best paths!
3. Listen; learn: It's not about one's rhetoric, or his way, but, rather, quality leaders prioritize listening, far more than speaking, and consistently learning from every conversation, and experience. Why would anyone follow someone, unless they believed, the other person cared deeply, and had their interests in mind. This means addressing, both the actual, as well as the perceived needs, of the stakeholders.
4. Leadership; logic: One begins to exhibit quality leadership, when/ if, he clearly articulates his approach, and uses relevant, sustainable logic, which attracts others to listen more, and believe in the particular leader.
5. Orderly; original; open - mind: One can't be, all over, the place, and create the best value, for others. Rather, only when one proceeds in an orderly manner, and creates original ideas, and value, he begins to attract followers! This is usually, only achieved, when one proceeds, in an open - minded, empathetic manner!
6. Worthy/ worthwhile; where: When others consider their leader, to be worthy of leading, and providing worthwhile leadership, they become far more willing to follow him, in a consistent, persistent manner. True leaders explain to constituents, where they hope to bring the group, how it will benefit and improve it, making it more relevant and sustainable, etc.
Will you be the type of leader, capable of getting others, to FOLLOW? Do you have, what it takes?
