What is Results-Based Leadership?

Results-based leadership has relentless emphasis on results. It's simple equation:

Effective leadership = leadership attributes results.


"This equation suggests that leaders must strive for excellence in both terms: that is, they must both demonstrate attributes and achieve results. Each term of the equation multiplies each other; they are not cumulative.

Why Results-Based Leadership?

What is missing in most leadership-related writings and teachings, is the lack of attention to results. Most of them focus on organizational capabilities  such as adaptability, agility, mission-directed, or values-based  or on leadership competencies such as vision, character, trust, and other exemplary attributes, competencies and capabilities.

All well and good, but what is seriously missing is the connection between these critical capabilities and results. And this is what results-based leadership is all about: how organizational capabilities and leadership competencies lead to and are connected to desired results.

Benefits of Results-Based Leadership

By helping leaders at all levels get results, results-based leadership frees productivity from constraints of hierarchy and the limitations of position. Results-based leaders define results by understanding audience and customer needs. They continually ask and answer the question "What is wanted?" before they decided how to meet these needs.

Employees willingly follow result-based leaders who know both who they are (their own leadership attributes) and where they are going (their targeted results). Such leaders instill confidence and inspire trust in others because they are direct, focused, and consistent.

Results-based leadership makes performance measurement easier. "Without a results focus, calibration of leadership becomes extremely difficult. Measuring results helps organizations in many ways, from tracking leaders' individual growth, to comparing leadership effectiveness in similar roles, to clarifying the leader selection process, to structuring leadership development programs. Using results as the standard filters who should enter an organization and how they should be trained.
