How leaders influence people to believe

This post was originally published on this site

  • What does it take to be a leader? For Northwell Health president and CEO Michael Dowling, having an Ivy League degree and a large office is not what makes a leader. Leadership requires something much less tangible: influence.
  • True leaders inspire people to follow and believe in them and the organization’s mission by being passionate, having humility, and being a real part of the team. This is especially important in a field like health care, where guidance and teamwork save lives.
  • Authenticity is also key. “Don’t pretend, be real,” says Dowling. “Accept your vulnerabilities, accept your weaknesses, know where your strengths are, and get people to belong.”
