Leaders Form Emotional Bonds
November 13, 2019
Creativity does not belong exclusively to professional artists and geniuses; it is the birthright of every single human being. Creativity is our common heritage. You donít need to quit your job and move to Paris in order to lay claim to this heritage Ė all you have to do is clear some space in your life for whimsy, invention, sensory pleasure, and play.
-Elizabeth Gilbert

In his book, The Soul of Leadership, Deepak Chopra writes, “Leaders bring out the best in others, but successful visionaries go even further; they form lasting emotional bonds. They are the kinds of leaders we hold in our hearts. When people are emotionally bonded to you, they want to have contact with you. They want to be of service and share in your vision. Deep motivation then develops. True, lasting loyalties are formed.”

And in the book, Art of Leadership: Leading Early Childhood Organizations, Roger Neugebauer writes about twelve reasons people love to work for leaders, including one reason that is similar to Chopra’s: “You believe in people from day one.” He explains: “Your attitude about a person can have a significant dampening or buoying impact on their self-confidence. When you believe a person has the potential to succeed, and when you believe that a person has a desire to succeed, your support can make a difference.”
