#10: TRUE LEADERSHIP: What are Demand Relationships and Why They Don’t Work

What are demand relationships and what is the connection this has to leading teams in business? I hadn’t heard of demand relationships before until I heard a speaker explain this concept in personal relationships. In a demand relationship, a dynamic exists where power is being exerted over another person where they react to the power over them and it results in negative outcomes opposite to what is desired. Ironically, the same concept and outcome is relevant to leading a team in an organization and it’s counter to TRUE LEADERSHIP. This is the third mini-episode of the 5-part series I have been doing called TRUE LEADERSHIP. In this episode, I’m explaining what demand relationships are and why they don’t work. Want to know how to take the right approach that will create the best outcome for an engaged, productive and happy team…listen to this episode to find out!
