People who lead beyond their authority can produce change beyond their direct circle of control. Most leaders establish their reputation inside their organizations, where they are given the authority to lead. But what happens when they have to lead outside their organization? When they look to extend their leadership across the organization—or outside of it—the skills that have brought them success are sometimes suddenly not enough. The rules change and the strategies need to change, too.
Organizations need leaders to see across the whole organization and make the sum of the parts greater than the whole - and it doesn’t stop at organizations. Society needs leaders who can overcome the silo problem inside their organization, and then move across different spheres of activity outside it and connect them too. In order to do this well, leaders need to lead peers, partners and stakeholders. In doing so, they may find that the skills that initially brought them success may not be enough. To operate effectively, they need a different approach to leadership.
