PSC.03 (THE POWER OF SELF COACHING) LEADERSHIP RULE #1: WHEN IN CHARGE - LEAD! DONNA KUNDE & WILLIAM EASTMAN
Let's start this conversation with the source - The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli. I don't know how much you know about the book or him, but here is the primer; and BTW - I bet what you heard is wrong.
He is a 16th century advisor to the de Medici's - one of the few power bases outside of Rome and the Church. He was an astute observer of human behavior and took a more pragmatic approach to people and the exercise of power
Here is the basis of his work - "is it better to rule from love or fear?" Understand the people he consulted with included powerful merchants and even a pope. His premise and observation was that both power bases was necessary but if you only had one - pick fear because it would ensured you will would be done. However the danger is undisciplined use of fear leads to hatred and eventually rebellion. So the question for all leaders since is what is the right balance?
