In continuation of the last week article on Leadership by Acharya’s Bangalore Business School, we present some more valuable leadership lessons from ABBS in this article.
"Do not be buffaloed by experts and elites. Experts often possess more data than judgment. Elites can become so inbred that they produce haemophiliacs who bleed to death as soon as they are nicked by the real world".
Small companies and start-ups do not have the time for analytically detached experts. They do not have the money to subsidize lofty elites, either. The president answers the phone and drives the truck when necessary, everyone on the payroll visibly produces and contributes to bottom line results or they are history. But as companies get bigger, they often forget who "brought them to the dance floor" things like all-hands involvement, informality, market intimacy, daring, risk, speed, agility. Policies that emanate from ivory towers often have an adverse impact on the people out in the field who are fighting the wars or bringing in the revenues. Real leaders are vigilant and combative, in the face of these trends.

"Don't be afraid to challenge the pros, even in their own backyard"
Learn from the Pros, observe them, and seek them out as mentors and partners. But remember that even the Pros may have levelled out in terms of their learning and skills. Sometimes even the pros can become complacent and lazy.
Leadership does not emerge from blind obedience to anyone. Xerox's Barry Rand was right on target when he warned his people that if you have a "yes-man" working for you, one of you is redundant. Good leadership encourages everyone's evolution.
"You do not know what you can get away with until you try".
You know the expression "It is easy to get forgiveness than permission". Well, it is true. Good leaders do not wait for official blessing to try things out. They are prudent, not reckless. But they also realize a fact of life in most organizations: if you ask enough people for permission, you will inevitably come up against someone who believes his job is to say "NO".
So the moral is, do not ask. Less effective middle managers endorsed the sentiment "If I have not explicitly being told "Yes", I cannot do it". Whereas the good ones believed, "If I have not been explicitly told "No", I can.” There is a world of difference between these two points of view. You will exactly choose the view where you belongLeadership Lesson-6
"Great leaders are almost always great simplifier, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand".
Effective leaders understand the "KISS" principle, "Keep it simple stupid". They articulate vivid over arching goals and values, which they use to drive daily behaviors and choices among competing alternatives. Their visions and priorities are lean and compelling, not cluttered and buzzword-laden. Their discussions are crisp and clear, not tentative and ambiguous. They convey an unwavering firmness and consistency in their actions, aligned with the picture of the future they paint. The result: clarity of purpose, credibility of leadership and integrity in organization.
