Guiding Principles for The 21st Century Leader
Citing the spirit of leadership of Abraham Lincoln, Mohandas Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr., Dennis Romig, author of Side by Side Leadership, offers leaders and followers ways they can work together and create outstanding performance gains. His ideas are rooted in seven leadership principles, which include the following:

  • Interaction Fields - leaders create new resources by pulling in and creatively combining resources from outside interaction fields;
  • Focused Creativity - new ideas allow people to increase quality and productivity without working harder or longer;
  • Proven Knowledge - knowledge and experience can help select the best of the proposed ideas for improving performance;
  • Transferred Authority - when workers have the authority to make the improvements they see in their work area without waiting for upper-management approval, the benefits are realized faster.
  • Two-way communication, shared visionary goals, participation from all team members in decision-making and delegated authority round out the seven Side by Side Leadership principles.
