We are moving from a world of leading from authority to leading by influence.
Leading from authority entails speaking first. To give precise orders and explain the context for their execution. The key is to understand tasks better, break them down and assign them to a person with the right qualification.
Leading by influence requires us to speak second. To listen to the other person – her dreams, ambitions and inclinations, and speak her language. The objective is to understand people, and assign the right task for them.
In the future, we would be leading machines by authority and people by influence.
