Top Customer Reviews
Consultants Aubrey and James Daniels are behaviorists who explain how personnel “everywhere” in the organization can be “leaders” with optimum effect on the behavior of “others”. As they emphasize at the outset: “We are discussing the effect that any one person has on the behavior of others”. And it’s these others—also called “followers”—who leaders focus on in order to have the greatest effect on them. Everywhere-leaders focus not so much on themselves (“focus . . . not [on] the leader”) as they do on followers because “power resides in the follower”. Leaders direct (primarily by positive reinforcement) the power/behavior of followers to advance the organization’s (or sub-unit’s) goals, priorities, and values.
“It’s all about behavior”: the behavior of everywhere-leaders that establishes and maintains the antecedents and consequences of the desired behaviors of followers. The authors acknowledge that their understanding of effectiveness in organizations is based on “the science of Behavior Analysis”, and they cite and quote numerous behaviorist theorists and researchers, including B. F. Skinner.
I assign Measure of a Leader as a textbook in my Master of Public Administration course, Leadership in Public Sector Organizations: A Quality Management Approach. I encouraging my students: Be a behaviorist, focus on followers and, thereby, up your game!
