The Fundamental Dilemmas of P O W E R
Mobilization and Use of Resources Especially Money Money is needed to run for public office. . . All politicians must search for money. Money is not free – those who will give it want something in return.
Personal Loyalties and Alliances Running for or staying in office requires alliances, whether formal or informal. Alliances require give and take.
Expectations from Constituency and the Bureaucracy Some expectations can be unreasonable and unaligned. How can expectations be managed?
Alignment and Balance Between Values and Dominant Practices of Public Office Public office demands certain things from the persons in office, who have certain values and beliefs. How can the demands of public office and personal values be aligned?
ASG aims to develop a cadre of leaders in the public sector steeped in the values and commitment to active service, with a solid command of technical, political, organizational and ethical practices of good governance, so that they could grow towards authentic leadership and excellence in PUBLIC SERVICE.
The following PRINCIPLES are the key conceptual anchors upon which ASG builds its framework on leadership in governance and the public sector
Leadership takes shape and is exercised in relationships, it is a two way process of mutual influence. • Leadership conveys power and the notion that we expect a leader to influence through non-coercive means. It guides people to cope with complexity, ambiguity and uncertainty. • Leadership unfolds and operates in a context, a specific culture, period, and situation that influences both what leaders need to do and what they are able to do.
Structural Political 4 Dimensions of Leadership Human Development Symbolic
4 Dimensions of Leadership Structural leaders focus on structure, strategy, environment; implementation, experimentation, adaptation
4 Dimensions of Leadership Human Development leaders believe in people and communicate that belief; they are visible and accessible; they move decision-making across and down to the organization
4 Dimensions of Leadership Political leaders clarify the agenda, what the leader and constituent members want and what they can get;they build linkages to other stakeholders; use persuasion first, then negotiation and coercion only if necessary.
4 Dimensions of Leadership Symbolic leaders view the organizations or institutions as a stage or theater to play certain roles and give impressions; these leaders use symbols to capture attention; they discover and communicate a vision and thereby provide inspiration.
Wise and balanced use of power is a key defining element of authentic leadership: Personal Power comes from an inner source within the person through a specific capacity, faculty, aptitude or competency. Positional Power emanates from the authority that comes with an office, the official role.

The fundamental challenge of being a leader is the integration of personal power with one’s positional power. Leadership then moves from practice to art where personal mastery is manifested in the subtle but powerful exercise of control through focus.
INTENTION. . . The tool of self-discipline that focuses on task completion. WISDOM. . . The tool that moves practice to art.
