EFFECTIVENESS Leaders are also responsible for generating effectiveness by being enablers. They need to enable others to reach their potential both personally and institutionally. I believe that the most effective way to enable one’s colleagues is through participative decision-making. It begins with believing in the potential of people, in their diverse gifts. Leaders must realize that to maximize their own power and effectiveness, they need to empower others. Leaders are responsible for setting and attaining the goals of their organizations.
I made the point earlier that we should treat our employees as if we had a covenantal, rather than a contractual, relationship with them. Alexander Solzhenitsyn, speaking to the 1978 graduating class of Harvard College, said this about legalistic relationships: “A society based on the letter of the law and never reaching any higher fails to take advantage of the full range of human possibilities. The letter of the law is too cold and formal to have a beneficial influence on society. ” Covenantal relationships, on the other hand, induce freedom, not paralysis.
Leaders accumulate, rather than distribute, power. Attainment of short-term goals becomes detrimental to the acquisition of long-term goals. Individuals abide by the letter of the law, but not its spirit. People treat students or customers as impositions. The accidents become more important than the substance. A loss of grace, style, and civility occurs. Leaders use coercion to motivate employees. Administrators dwell on individuals’ weaknesses rather than their strengths. Individual turf is protected to the detriment of institutional goals.
