This is how great leaders inspire others to act

Adopted from the following great insight shared by David Rock from the book Your Brain at Work

1) Great leaders understand intuitively that they need to work hard to create a sense of safety in others. In this way, great leaders are often humble leaders, thereby reducing the status threat.

2) Great leaders provide clear expectations and talk a lot about the future, helping to increase certainty.

3) Great leaders let others take charge and make decisions, increasing autonomy.

4) Great leaders often have a strong presence, which comes from working hard to be authentic and real with other people, to create a sense of relatedness.

5) Great leaders keep their promises, taking care to be perceived as fair.
