Inducing positive influence is the best indicator of leadership success. This is not just communicating, suggesting, earning or investing money; It is to transform reality and above all to achieve results without any subjectivity for clients, society and the planet. It is a result that produces significant improvement and important and powerful advances in the economy, infrastructure, living conditions, environmental sustainability, positive emotions, among others. As a consequence of the correct definition and proper application of the strategy, policy, project.

Those who are unable to achieve a positive effect will pay the bill: frustration and dissatisfaction, loss of resources and poor results that can affect the very survival of the organization, institution or company they lead.

In terms of influence, I have noticed that there are two types of leaders. Those who put influence at the heart of their management and are responsible for making decisions and actions that produce results; while others lose sight of what is really important, are not clear about the cause and effect relationship between management and results and prefer to surround themselves with colleagues who tell them what they want to hear or tend to vaguely define management and results.

Five principles are observed in leaders who consistently produce high positive impact.

First: they have a clear purpose and the results they are looking for. The positive effects to be achieved are expressed in a clear, concise and realistic manner. They are aligned with the expectations of those they serve.

Second: they define decisions and give priority to specific, practical and understandable actions; according to what you want to achieve. They are also informed and few in number, concentrating all resources, efforts and energy.

Third: Identify what might prevent success and how to prevent it.

Fourth: assign clear responsibilities for decisions and actions taken.

Are we aware of the positive impact of our decisions and actions? How can we improve the ability to provoke?

Fifth: measures to ensure the achieved effect (in what has been done and what has been achieved). They do this with absolute transparency, objectivity and honesty. This helps them adjust when things don’t go as expected.

In a fast-paced, changing and competitive business world, it is so important to consistently generate positive impact that those at the helm judge their CEOs or general managers and their teams on their ability to generate it. This has not yet happened in the public sphere, but the satisfaction of citizens depends on it. The consequences can be even greater; various statistics show that citizens do not trust democracy when the positive effect of public governance is weak.

Today we see people troubled by their unresolved problems and urgent needs; The challenge of the next Government is to cause a positive effect, to make decisions and actions that will improve people’s lives in the short term. In the critical and complex situation we are experiencing, it is very important that leaders, in public and in private, ask themselves the following thoughts: Are we aware of the positive impact of our decisions and actions? How can we improve the ability to provoke? (OR)
