Leadership today should be very different from traditional leadership, especially in China where we have what you can see as a PARENTING style of LEADERSHIP, which is more authoritative and controlled. Today and in the future we need a type of leader which FOCUSES MORE on the FOLLOWERS. Where the challenge often comes from is; the LEADER’S ability to RELINQUISH some POWER.
Instead of keeping all the POWER in their own hands LEADER’s should release some of it to there teams, and work in close cooperation at the FRONT LINES.
