What is Leading for Results?
Results-based leadership emphasizes the importance of leading for optimal performance with the aim of producing meaningful and observable desired results that benefit the individuals involved, the organization, clients, customers, other stakeholders, and/or the broader world.
Why is Results-Based Leadership Important?
Leaders who focus on results ensure that those they lead are clear about the results they are trying to achieve and why it’s important to achieve them. They inspire their followers to stay motivated and engaged in spite of any challenges or set-backs they may face, and they ensure that they have the resources and support they need to be successful. If a leader doesn’t pay attention or is unsuccessful in leading in these areas, desired results may not materialize, effort and resources may be wasted, and followers can become disengaged leading to low morale.
