The Principle Of Authority

According to the author and psychologist Robert Cialdini, people resort to ‘fixed-action patterns’ in this fast-paced world, and authority plays a huge factor in the science of influence and persuasion. People listen to and trust an authority figure, as they are too busy to study everything in detail.

Word of mouth also works in the same way, as if someone is trusted by the people in our circle, we also tend to trust that person.

Too many leaders are trying to lead by email. We need humanity more than well-articulated emails.


Call your employees and ask them how they are doing. Take the time to listen to them. Treat them like friends. They should feel heard at the end of the call. If it is a larger company, check in on your leaders, and lean on them to check in on their teams.

  • Develop relationships with your team members: that way both of you are more willing to listen.
  • Don’t put it off.
  • Choose a private and safe place.
  • Plan what you’re going to say, according to the person you are talking to.
  • Be factual and objective
  • Wait for the other person to talk next. When you’ve said your piece, shut up. 
  • Don’t end the session until you’ve agreed on 3 things:  what will change, when it will change and how both of you will know that it’s changed.

When the employee experiences bitter feedback related to the past which is useless to the current scenario, it creates an atmosphere of distrust. Managers need to be adaptive and coach the employee in real-time, focusing on the future, and not on the past.

Great managers paint a vision of the upcoming goal, and how to succeed in achieving the same, while clearing the obstacles the employee will eventually face.

The Musaeum, or "shrine of the Muses," from where we get the word museum, included a lengthy roofed walkway and a large communal dining hall, where scholars dined and shared ideas. The scholars were salaried employees, received free room and board, and paid no taxes.

The Musaeum contained exhibit halls, private study rooms, lecture halls, residential quarters for scholars, and theatres. The Great Library held shelves upon shelves of papyrus scrolls and was envisioned as a universal library that would contain all the world's written knowledge.
