Building Consensus

Achieving your immediate goals is a cornerstone of effective leadership. And yet, there is a delicate balance between achieving your short-term goals and upsetting people in the long-term with aggressive tactics. For this reason, consensus building is an essential leadership competency. Sometimes, direct persuasion and forceful advocacy are the best ways to influence other people, and sometimes working from the inside out and forging an internal consensus will be your most effective route.
