In Leadership, The Critical Convergence Drives Great Results
by Brent Filson

The Leader's Fallacy lives! We subscribe to the Fallacy when we believe our enthusiasm with a particular leadership challenge is automatically reciprocated by the people we lead.

If ignorance is bliss then leaders going around blithely adhering to the Leader's Fallacy have cornered the market on happiness.

The truth is, it's more realistic to believe in INVERSE RECIPROCITY: i.e., whatever motivates you, "DE-motivates" the people.

That's especially so for leaders who are trying to motivate people to meet extraordinary challenges.

You'll never know how good you are as a leader unless you are motivating others to be better than they think they are. In that endeavor, you'll inevitably get at least some of the people angry.

Most people are settled into a comfortable status quo and resent being challenged to break out.

But if you aim to lead people to get great results, they not only have to be pushed but more importantly, they must be challenged to push themselves.

They will only push themselves to accomplish extraordinary things for you when they share in your enthusiasms. That sharing is called critical convergence, the joining of your enthusiasms and theirs so they are as enthusiastic as you about meeting the challenges you face. Until a critical convergence happens, you can't get great results consistently.

Don't think the critical convergence will happen automatically. You must work hard to achieve it.

After all, you yourself must be motivated about those challenges. If you're not motivated, you shouldn't be leading. But your motivation is irrelevant simply because it's a given.

Here's what's relevant: Can you transfer your motivation to the people so they are as motivated as you are? And can you translate their motivation into action that achieves results?

Everyone has major needs that shape their thinking and their actions day in and day out. If you want those people to take ardent action for you, you must provide solutions to the problems of those needs so the action you have them take brings them closer to realizing those solutions.

By the way, the critical convergence is not "win/win". It's much deeper and richer. Unlike "win/win", the critical convergence is an on-going relationship process from which flow mutually beneficial expectations and solutions.

Here are three steps you can take to help make a critical convergence happen.

(1) Understand their needs.

(2) Turn their needs into problems.

(3) Have their commitment to your cause be a solution to their problems.

To get the best out of people, we must embrace the best in them. Whenever you need to lead people to tackle important challenges, recall the Leader's Fallacy. Don't be taken in by it. Know that their commitment to your cause doesn't come automatically. You have to earn it by embracing the best of who they are. Take the trouble to build a critical convergence. You'll see a significant jump in results.
