According to John Adair, there are three elements to all leadership situations which are:
- The achievement of a goal or task.
This may be the completion of a very practical activity or it may be a less tangible goal. We know that effective groups have clear goals shared by all members. Often the task is what brings the group together in the first place.
- The group of people performing the task.
It is likely that the task will only be achieved if all members of the group work together to the common good. Therefore, the group itself has to be understood as an entity in its own right.
- Each individual member of the group involved in the task.
While the group will take on a life of its own, individuals do not lose their own identity. Their needs as people must continue to be met if their allegiance to the group, and their motivation to achieve the task, is to be sustained.
The “Action-Centred LeadershipTM” approach is centered on the actions of the leader. The leader has to balance the needs from each of the three elements. The effective leader is the one who keeps all three in balance; that is who attends to all three at the same time. If any one element is ignored, the others are unlikely to succeed.
